We are living in very trying times - more so than in past years when Fires, Floods and Power Outages dominated the Disaster Recovery scene.

Nowadays, we have the emergence of Cyber, Terror, Protests, International Intrigue and other areas of great concern. It's time for action!

This is your opportunity to be better prepared by joining the First State Delaware Chapter of the Association of Continuity Professionals (ACP).

Tailored from the SMB to Enterprise firms, the ACP is a professional organization that provides a forum for the exchange of experiences and information for business continuity leaders throughout a network of local Chapters. With Delaware having more corporate HQs than any other state - and a focus on the SMB market to serve their communities and these corporate HQ's, it's time to join us to gain exposure to dozens of ideas and resources to protect your employees, your businesses and your communities. And, all of this at a very fair fee based on the size of your firm.

The First State Delaware Chapter serves all three counties within the state of Delaware. Meetings are held in various locations or via Webinar throughout the state and occur quarterly. We look forward to seeing you at our next meeting as Delaware serves as the headquarters for more Fortune 500 companies than in any other state. We have a real reason for collaboration! Join us!!
