If you haven’t already done so, we hope you will take this moment to renew your ACP membership for 2021.
 
During these unprecedented times, by renewing your national and chapter ACP membership you’ll retain access to key member benefits. Below are a few of our member benefits: 
  • INDUSTRY PRESENCE: ACP is dedicated to being a national voice for the profession and provides representation at major industry events.  ACP is nimble, shifting focus to pertinent topics, issues, threats and provides relevant and reliable information to members to help them pivot, quickly.
  • NETWORKING: ACP Members network their preferred way, with opportunities to meet at local chapter events, virtually at a chapter or national level, at industry events, via topic "round-table " discussions, and via social media.  Local chapter affiliation adds further value to network with those local to you.  Networking locally and nationally provides greater opportunities to further your professional development.  
  • PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT: ACP supports your professional development via education, resources and by providing leadership opportunities.  ACP is dedicated to providing pathways to help the resiliency practitioner level-up their personal brand.
Congratulations to the December drawing winner, Mark White, of the Orange County ACP Chapter!

Businesses rely on critical 3rd party providers and supply chains for products and services that, if disrupted, could negatively impact customers and clients. This could be in the form of financial losses, but it could also have contractual, reputation, and customer retention implications. Business Continuity professionals need to be actively engaged and integrated into the supply chain risk processes and procedures. Join presenter and ACP member Michael Harding for an in-depth discussion.

After 2020 and the delivery of new vaccines for COVID-19, there are reasons to be more positive about the future of business. However, all the changes that took place in 2020 have forced a rethink on how and where we work. These changes will be with us for months to come, if not permanently. The shift, triggered by COVID-19, will double the number of people working remotely on a permanent basis to 34.4% of all employees according to Enterprise Technology Research. Technology companies are leading this move – Mark Zuckerberg estimates that around 50% of all Facebook staff will be remote in the future, Twitter and Square have made their remote working approaches permanent, and Google will be remote until at least September 2021.
