Who We Are

The Association of Continuity Professionals (ACP) is a non-profit trade association dedicated to fostering continued professional growth and development in effective contingency and business resumption planning. ACP is the recognized premier international networking and information exchange organization in the business continuity industry. Founded in 1983 as a non-profit mutual benefit association, ACP's membership is open to anyone with an interest in, or responsibility for the various aspects of continuity planning

What We Do

Continuity planning is a required element for successful business and government agencies. Emergency managers and business continuity professionals alike address mitigation, response, and recovery planning issues. The purpose of ACP is to provide an environment for the exchange of experiences and information. This includes identification of common planning needs and potential recovery response solutions, as well as networking opportunities through local and national alliances.
This organization serves as a forum for business professionals working in the areas of business continuity, business resumption, contingency planning, disaster recovery, and other related emergency recovery functions. Membership in ACP is open to all professionals interested in the many fields of crisis management, business continuity, and disaster recovery. Our chapter represents the North Texas region. Our membership extends to all parts of the Dallas / Ft. Worth metroplex and represents a variety of industries. Guests are always welcome!

When We Meet

The North Texas ACP chapter meets on the first Tuesday of every month. Locations and times can vary so visit our Events page for information on upcoming meetings and other events in the area.
