ACP North Texas Members,
Welcome to 2021! For those new to the Chapter, my name is Chet Bojarski and I am honored to have been elected to serve as the 2021 President of the ACP North Texas Chapter. Previous to this office, I served for three years as your North Texas ACP Programs Director.
Many of you know I see myself as an “Evangelist” for the industry, both locally and nationally. I never started my career looking to get into Business Resiliency & Crisis, but my journey has taken me from being an IT network tech, through the world of Program Management, to helping businesses enhance their strategies around our disciplines. I have been blessed to have worked in multiple industries including Retail, Food & Beverage, Health Care, and most recently Financial.
I must say I found my passion when I was introduced to Resiliency further into my career. I finally joined the ACP in 2016 after working in the industry. The next year I attained my CBCP certification through DRII and then achieved my MBCP certification in 2017. That same year I was elected to the Programs position for our Chapter. Currently, I am taking (online) classes as I work on a FEMA certification. Being a part of the ACP, I have had the opportunity to talk and work with many peers in the industry that continues to enhance how I think about our profession.
A new year brings new prospects for each of us as professionals and as a chapter. I am looking to our newly elected Board of Directors to help guide us with expanded opportunities for Chapter members to engage in throughout 2021, based on their own unique passions.
As one of the largest ACP Chapters in the United States, we leave 2020 with mixed emotions as we all experienced the Pandemic in different ways. As challenging of a year as it was, we also learned so much about our own strength, the strength of our industry, and the communities we live and serve in.
I look forward in 2021 to see how we can each, and together as a chapter, make a positive difference in all of our goals.
Chet Bojarski, MBCP
North Texas Chapter President
