Who Are We?

The Hampton Roads Association of Continuity Professionals (HRACP) is a chapter of the national, not-for-profit professional Association of Continuity Professionals (ACP).
We serve the business community and business continuity/emergency management/disaster recovery sectors.
Our members represent the private and public sectors, as well as non-profit organizations across the country.
We provide a forum for the exchange of information and collaboration across professions, sectors & industries.

The Hampton Roads Chapter meets quarterly, the fourth Wednesday of the months of January, April, July, and October unless otherwise announced for a particular event. Meeting place may vary depending upon the venue/event.

We view the Hampton Roads Chapter as the "chapter of choice" in the contingency industry.

It is our hope and intent that we will be the place to go for resources, networking, and education. Members enjoy this economical alternative to out-of-town conferences as the HRACP Chapter addresses the unique needs and culture of the Tidewater area.

Our Mission

To provide a forum for learning and growth, advancement, mastery and added value within the related disciplines of Business Continuity and Emergency, Incident, and Crisis Management.

  • A virtual library - to archive and share knowledge
