On April 10, 2015, the University of Maryland’s Robert H. Smith School of Business partnered with DRI International to hold DRI’s first collegiate conference. More than 100 DRI-certified professionals, business continuity planning leaders and students were in attendance.
DRI President Al Berman welcomed attendees and discussed current issues and careers in business continuity planning (BCP). Berman said that BCP is a relatively new area and the conference is a great informational exchange that will also introduce students to potential career opportunities. Many companies can’t fill the current demand for available BCP positions, he said.
