Who are the members of ACP? 

As an ACP member, you gain access to a vibrant community of over 1,000 active members across chapters spanning America. And we’re not stopping there - our community is rapidly growing, offering boundless opportunities for connection and learning.

How can I find a local chapter? 

You can find the ACP Chapter Directory on the Chapter page under the Membership menu item on our website.

Can I attend meetings at different chapters? 

Absolutely! We encourage participation from members across the country. If you travel extensively, join the Chapter where you would attend most of your meetings. Feel free to contact any ACP Chapter located where you are traveling and RSVP for meetings.

What if there’s no local chapter in my area? 

No worries! If there’s no Chapter in your area, or you’re not interested in joining a Chapter, you can opt to be an ACP National member. National members enjoy the same access to the National website, webinars, and industry discounts.

What is ACP’s payment policy? 

We accept 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. Please note that ACP membership dues are not refundable.

Are corporate dues separate from chapter dues? 

Yes, they are. ACP National dues are $125. Individuals may join a local chapter, and each chapter establishes its own annual membership fee.

Is ACP a non-profit organization? 

Yes, ACP is a non-profit, tax-exempt professional association registered with the Internal Revenue Service as a 501c6 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. Please consult your tax advisor for information and advice.

Does ACP provide certifications? 

While ACP does not provide professional certifications, we partner with well-known and reputable organizations that do. Please see the Partners and Resources sections on our website for additional information.
