ACP North Texas Members,

 

As we wrap up our 35th anniversary as a Chapter, I could not be happier with our 2021 accomplishments and the excitement around our coming year. As 2021 goes, we accomplished so much as a Chapter:

  • Participated in awareness events with the North Texas Facilities Expo & Secure World driving new contacts
  • Launched our Think Tank, expanded/matched Mentorship, Initiated the Ambassador program
  • Members stepped up for committees and Board leadership positions
  • Started researching & documenting our history & connected with our founders
  • Had multiple SME speaking opportunities at UNT and Collin College
  • Monthly Meetings did not skip a beat (even in year 2 of a Pandemic!)
  • Actively engaged in National ACP programs
    • Academia Video design and delivery team
    • Marketing & Membership Committees
  • Made financial donations to the North Texas Food Bank and Children’s Health
  • We hosted a Public/Private Cyber event for the Frisco Chamber of Commerce

As I look to 2022, our program is strong thanks to you as members. The success over all these 35 years is really due to the power of our membership. You demonstrate your strength not just in the industry, but by stepping up in the program to help drive and form our future. Our industry is small, and each friendship we make along the way is an investment in everyone’s future.  Special thanks to each of you who have brought new members into our program and for those that will help expand our membership in the new year.

I look forward to being President for a second term. I am excited to see what accomplishments our program will achieve as we move forward. Our strength is driven by passion, commitment, and friendships that are shared by all our members. Let’s continue to challenge each other while working to each leave their mark during our 36th year. The Disciplines around Organizational Resiliency are expanding and as a chapter, we will continue to help our membership grow to support them.

I personally wish each of you and your families a Safe, Happy and Prosperous 2022.

 

Regards,
