Building Resiliency through Engagement in North Texas

Welcome to the North Texas Chapter of the Association of Continuity Professionals (ACP). ACP is a non-profit professional organization, which provides a forum for the exchange of experiences and information, for business continuity professionals, throughout a network of local chapters.

Founded in March of 1986, the North Texas Chapter is one of the oldest continuously meeting chapters, and the largest ACP chapter by membership, serving the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex and North Texas region.  Meetings are held on the first Tuesday of every month unless the first Tuesday coincides with a holiday week.  We invite you to attend our next meeting either in-person or virtually.

ACP North Texas Members,

Each year since I became president of the Chapter, I create a wish list of initiatives (AKA putting some seeds out there for those who saw my presentation at the January meeting). I look for members to volunteer for any of the initiatives that interest you. Maybe you like writing? are visually creative? enjoy AV? want to explore marketing? enjoy networking? (Please keep reading either way). Each member’s experience in the NorthTXACP chapter is unique as we offer the opportunity to contribute to our Chapter, our Legacy, and our community. We have all seen how a small group of individuals, focused on one objective, can make the difference. This year is no different and I announced them at the Chapter meeting this past January.

So why should you take time to check out the initiatives and volunteer for one or more of them? Everyone is different, so there is no one answer. But it is an opportunity to step up and see what you and other members might be able to do with an idea. Over the years I have had the opportunity to learn & grow from many of you through your experiences. It is amazing what your fellow members can help with. In fact, recently I totaled up how many years of experience our Chapter members have in the industry, that is an amazing 1,579 years of experience to tap into!

As President, I enjoy seeing new ideas and concepts, never knowing what will work. Over the past couple of years, we have seen ideas led by members take off. Our Think Tank is now going extremely well. Member discounts at conferences are appreciated by many. Our partnership with Academia helped deliver multiple videos and we have engaged with UTD, UNT, and Collin College. Our Booth in a Box which we staff at conferences helped drive new member engagement this past year, 17 in fact, as we expanded awareness of our Network. Just a little focused effort can make big difference.

So today I personally ask each of you to take a few moments and look over the list below. Find something you might like to do and submit your name and the area you are interested in. It is easy to do by just emailing us at our Chapter mailbox This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .  I will contact you to give you more information, but the first step is to let us know you are interested. Thank you in advance for your membership and for helping out.
