Welcome to the Northeast Florida Chapter of the Association of Continuity Professionals (ACP). 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.
The Northeast Florida Chapter serves the Northeast Florida area. Meetings are held on the third Wednesday of every other month at pre-announced locations. We invite you to attend our next meeting.
There are currently no upcoming events.
Unless noted, meetings will be held the third Wednesday of every other month. Specific meeting details will be sent with the invitation for each meeting and will be posted here. Anyone interested in hosting an event or speaking at an upcoming event, please contact the President, John Jordan via email.
The ACP Northeast Florida Chapter is pleased to welcome all guests to our Chapter meetings. We hope you’ll enjoy your experience and encourage you to give serious consideration to the many benefits and opportunities available through our ACP Corporate and Chapter community. Annual ACP membership with the Northeast Florida Chapter is $110.00 and allows access to any ACP Chapter meeting or event nationwide. Effective June 1, 2010, the ACP Northeast Florida Chapter instituted a “Repeat Guest” cover charge. The fundamental purpose of the cover charge is to help defray Chapter expenses. If you’re an active, paid-in-full member of ACP International, regardless of your chapter affiliation, please pre-register for the Chapter meeting by contacting the Program or Membership director. ACP members from a sister chapter are asked to present their membership ID card during sign in to assist us with tracking your CEU benefits.
If you are new to ACP, we offer that you attend two meetings in which the cover charge will be waived. This will give you the opportunity to determine if ACP is right for you. By the third meeting, you are considered a repeat guest.
If you’re a repeat guest, have attended prior Northeast Florida chapter meetings but have yet to join the ACP, or you were part of ACP and your membership has lapsed, you’ll be required to remit a ($10.00) cover charge, in cash or check payable to ACP Northeast Florida Chapter, when you sign-in prior to the start of each meeting.
Note: Repeat Guests or Inactive Members who join / renew prior to the close of the Chapter meeting, submit the appropriate paperwork and payment of their dues via a check or credit card, will have their cover charge returned!
Northeast Florida ACP chapter currently meets on the third Wednesday of every other month. The normal meeting location is at the American Red Cross Facility at 751 Riverside Avenue, Jacksonville, FL 32204. Chapter meetings generally start at 2:30 PM. Occasionally we meet at a different location to observe a specific entities business continuity and emergency response infrastructure, such as the National Weather Service, state or local emergency operation center, or even a special location such as Disney or the Kennedy Space Center. These are published several months in advance.
