The Business Continuity Institute’s (BCI) member volunteer community has just elected a new member to the BCI Global Board. Elected for a period of three years is Luke Bird FBCI, who’s a volunteer with the BCI’s Scotland Chapter. He was recently awarded the grade of Fellow of the BCI and is the youngest person to ever receive that accolade.
On hearing of his election, Bird commented: “I’m delighted. Thank You to everyone who also stood and those who voted for me. The BCI has kindly supported my career from being a student member right through to now. It’s through this support that I’ve been afforded opportunity after opportunity to contribute. I’ve taken each one in the last ten years to do this and enjoyed every minute. I want the focus of my contribution with this role to be a highly active community member in the thought leadership space and membership development journey.”
The BCI’s chair Tim Janes Hon FBCI welcomed Luke’s election and said: “I’m very happy to hear that the BCI volunteer community has elected Luke to the Board. His contribution to the community in the last few years has been impressive. 2020 is a big year for the BCI and I look forward to the Ideas, energy and commitment Luke will bring to the Board as our newest and youngest director.”
