2020 ACP Summit in Conjunction with Continuity Insights

Be sure to join your ACP colleagues in San Antonio, Texas for ACP’s 2020 Summit! at the Hyatt Regency Hill Country Resort. This time, our Summit will immediately follow Continuity Insights' 18th Annual Management Conference that begins Monday April 20, 2020.

While it is not required to attended CI in order to attend the Summit, there are substantial discounts from CI for attending both. Once registration is available, you can register for the ACP Summit while registering for the CI conference, right on the CI registration page. If registering ONLY for the ACP Summit, visit the ACP website once the registration page is available. That's coming soon.

The goal of having our summit directly after CI is to make it as convenient as possible and to minimize travel expenses. Continuity Insights begins on Monday April 20, 2020 and ends Wednesday, April 22 in the afternoon. The ACP Summit begins Wednesday afternoon and features a welcome reception that evening. The Summit then runs all day Thursday, April 23 concluding at 4 pm. 

More information on the conferences can be found here. Plan to be there!
