ACP and BCI Announce New Partnership
The ACP National Board of Directors is pleased to enter into a new partnership with the Business Continuity Institute (BCI). Both ACP and BCI provide educational and developmental opportunities for business continuity and resilience professionals, and that synergy made this partnership a natural. ACP members and US based professionals will see the partnership evolve in a number of ways, including:.
- Presentations of BCI research material to be made available to all ACP Chapters to leverage at regional events
- A series of jointly presented webinars
- ACP participation in Business Continuity Awareness Week
- BCI USA Chapter President Alice Kaltenmark & Committee member Frank Perlmutter shared insights of BCI thought leadership at the ACP National Conference in Las Vegas on February 17
- Production and publication of a thought leadership report
- Promotion of the ACPs local event program to the BCI community
ACP National Chair Scott Ream said “This is another important alliance for ACP. Our relationship with BCI reinforces our vision and mission, ‘Shaping and supporting the global community of resilience practitioners'." He added, “Together with BCI, our combined memberships will have an unprecedented opportunity for knowledge sharing and networking with like-minded individuals and organizations. ACP believes active relationships between all member-based organizations within our space strengthens each partner, each member, as well as it strengthens our profession.”
“I am really excited by this partnership with the ACP" said BCI USA Chapter President Alice Kaltenmark, "Our organizations have similar aims and working together in this way will only make it easier to achieve our BCI goal of a world where all organizations, communities and societies become more resilient together. I enjoyed attending and speaking at the ACP National Conference last week. It was great to network with continuity colleagues from across the country.”
