ACP Member Highlight

The ACP National Board of Directors' Membership Engagement Committee is working on efforts to support more engagement of our members. One way is to periodically introduce both new and tenured ACP members.

Name: John B. Johnson, Sr.
Member since: March 2019
Chapter: New York City Metro

Why did you join the ACP?

I knew several people that were ACP members that strongly encouraged me to join the organization. The things that were important to me were the vast business continuity resources that are available through the ACP and the ability to network with fellow BC professionals that are living and breathing the same situations and challenges that I am every day in our jobs of building and supporting the resiliency of our companies.

Looking back over the years, what has been your best memory of the ACP?
I am a relatively new member of the organization having joined just over a year ago. I really enjoy the discussions and relevant information that is presented at the monthly Chapter meetings. Many of my fellow business continuity professionals have either been through or are currently experiencing situations that I am encountering and are always eager to share their suggestions and recommendations. I also have learned a great deal from the guest speakers that have been featured at our meetings. It is my hope and intention to give back to the ACP by helping other members and contributing to the organization by serving on the Chapter Board.
 
What advice would you give new members?
Make every effort possible to attend the meetings on a regular basis. You never know when you may miss a discussion or presentation at a meeting that could be very relevant to what is currently happening at your own company.
