Membership faqs

How is membership in ACP structured?

Individual memberships are renewed on an annual basis. Each ACP chapter establishes its own local chapter dues. Differences in dues structures typically represent variations in local economies, costs associated with providing direct member services and benefits, and member preferences. For those without a nearby chapter, ACP offers a National membership.

Why should I join?

ACP has become a unifying force for practitioners in the rapidly evolving field of business continuity. Through its network of local chapters and strategic alliances with industry leaders, membership provides direct access to information and resources that enhance professional development. Active participation allows members to:

  • Share knowledge with and gain insight from a network of industry practitioners
  • Expand skill sets through an extensive knowledge base of resources
  • Earn professional education credits for membership and meeting attendance
  • Advance their careers through increased visibility and leadership opportunities
  • Receive discounts on conferences, products, services and training

Is ACP right for me?

Membership is open to those interested in the field of business continuity, emergency management, risk management and similar disciplines. If you would like to participate in our diverse network of nearly 1,000 professionals to learn and share knowledge about business continuity planning, join today!

Who are ACP members?

ACP has nearly 1,000 active members in 30 local chapters across the United States. Members serve in a variety of public and private industries including financial, information technologies, telecommunications, utilities, manufacturing and distribution, education, consulting, and health care.

How do I find a chapter?

The ACP Chapter Directory can be found on the Chapter page under the Membership menu item.

Can I attend meetings at different Chapters?

Chapters accept and encourage participation from members across the country. If you travel extensively, join the Chapter where you would attend a majority of your meetings. Then feel free to contact any ACP Chapter located where you are traveling and RSVP for meetings.

What if there is no local Chapter in my area?

If there is no Chapter located in your area, or you are not interested in joining a Chapter, you have the option to just be an ACP National member. National members have all of the same access to the National website, webinars and industry discounts.

What is ACP's payment policy?

ACP accepts checks, money orders and major credit cards (MasterCard, Visa, Discover, and American Express).

If your company pays for either a single membership or multiple memberships, it needs to send only one check. However, the check must accompany the renewal notice(s) or new membership application(s) of all persons paid so that the money can be correctly credited to each person's account.

Company-issued purchase orders are accepted only for renewing memberships.

ACP membership dues are not refundable.

Are corporate dues separate from Chapter dues?

Yes. ACP National dues are $100. Individuals may join a local chapter. Each chapter establishes its own annual membership fee.

Is ACP a non-profit organization?

ACP is a non-profit, tax-exempt professional association registered with the Internal Revenue Service as a 501(c)6 business league. Individual and organizational membership dues, sponsorship and other money paid to ACP are not considered charitable contributions but may be deductible business expenses. Consult your tax advisor for information and advice.

Does ACP provide certifications?

ACP does not provide professional certifications but partners with well-known and reputable organizations that do. See the Partners and Resources sections on the website for additional information.
