BICEPP was established as a private sector, self-help association funded by annual sponsorship donations. BICEPP later evolved into a non-profit corporation, lead by an Executive Committee and a Board of Directors. The goal remains the same:
"To provide a forum for information exchange to enhance emergency preparedness and contingency planning within the business community."
Now, more than ever before, business and industry must become more self-reliant. Pre-disaster mitigation measures and post-disaster recovery plans are essential to retain market share and the competitive edge. We hope that the success of BICEPP inspires others to emulate or create organizations that assist business and industry. By working together, we can efficiently prepare to handle any crisis.
