ACP National Leadership Summit 2020 in Conjunction with Continuity Insights

In light of the current COVID-19 developments, the ACP board has decided to cancel our Summit at this time. We are considering our options for possible re-scheduling in the future. If you have registered, our staff team will be in touch to issue full refunds.  

We intend to continue watching the situation carefully and our utmost concern is for the safety and welfare of our members and community. Please use an abundance of caution and use universal good hygiene practices and, of course, common sense. Please continue to watch the website for updates.
