Established in 1989, the Business Resumption Planners Association (BRPA) is an independent professional association of people employed in all aspects of disaster recovery, contingency and business continuity planning. Located in the greater Chicago area, we are a not-for-profit association dedicated to education and information exchange.

Membership is open to all professionals interested in contingency planning, disaster recovery, crisis management and related fields.

BRPA meets 6 to 8 times per year at various city and suburban locations throughout the Chicago metropolitan area. Educational programs include speakers, round tables and panel discussions. Special events include a holiday luncheon and a golf outing.
