Welcome to the Capital of Texas Chapter of the Association of Continuity Professionals (ACP).  ACP is a professional organization that provides a forum for the exchange of experiences and information for business continuity leaders and all professionals working in a risk discipline, throughout a network of local Chapters.

The Capital of Texas Chapter serves the Austin metropolitan area and beyond.  Meetings are held the third Thursday of every month at predetermined locations, unless there is a special event planned or the third Thursday coincides with a holiday.  We invite you to attend our next meeting. Check the Events Page for information about upcoming meetings and look below for current updates!  We look forward to seeing you soon!!


President's Comments

This has been an incredible year with many outstanding presentations and very interesting and informative roundtable sessions.  The 2018 Board of Directors votes are in and results are listed below.  I want to thank each person who has made, and continues to make, the commitment to participate on our Board.  The 2018 Board of Directors have already begun planning amazing events for 2018, so stay tuned for more information.  

Our Chapter has partnered with the newly formed Austin Security Alliance (ASA).  ASA was debuted to over 300 risk professionals at the Austin Security Group December Holiday Mixer.  Each organization in ASA shared information with the audience about their group to increase awareness of our specialties.  Our organization is the only one of its kind in the group, and I am excited about future opportunities with our ASA partners.  The Austin Security Alliance Introduction - Presentation was delivered at the Holiday Mixer and shows why and how we have come together to form ASA.

I look forward to seeing you at our Annual Holiday Luncheon on December 19th at Chez Zee.  Be sure to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. before December 17th so we can reserve a space for you at the table.

Happy Holidays!
