Business Continuity Institute (BCI) Gifted Grades are awarded each year to individuals who’ve made an outstanding contribution to the profession of business continuity or the Institute itself. BCI members of AMBCI grade and above can nominate someone whom they think deserves recognition. The BCI’s Board then reviews the suggestions and awards the grades. Applications must be received by 9.00 am on Monday 9 September. Entries should be in a narrative form and submitted via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
