The impact of the coronavirus pandemic has been profound in many ways. As the inevitable consequences of the economic recession come into play, the BCO is acutely aware that some of its members may be made redundant.

Should this be the case, please rest assured that the BCO wishes to help as far as we possibly can.  Please do not hesitate to contact us at, with your personal email and mobile number, if you have been made redundant and would like to maintain your membership at no charge until you secure a new position.

As a not for profit organisation, and one which derives a very large proportion of its income from events, the BCO itself has been hit very hard by the pandemic.  Membership subscription income also remains the organisation’s life blood.  However, we very much hope that, by extending this offer to members who are no longer employed, we will be able to keep what might be called “the BCO family” together while we all weather this extraordinarily difficult storm.
