Northeast Florida

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.

Upcoming Sessions

May 1, 2024 1:00 pm

Topic: Site Visit St. Augustine Alligator Farm Zoological Park

Due to some issues with the venue for our next meeting, we are postponing the 17 April meeting until 1 May at 1pm.  This meeting will be a very special one, since it will be held at the Alligator Farm on US 1 in St Augustine, actually on Anastasia Island across from downtown St Augustine.  The management of the Alligator Farm has agreed to host us and will provide a “behind the scenes” look at how they develop and execute their business continuity plan.  As you might imagine, a facility that contains hundreds of large reptiles, birds and other assorted animals has some unique challenges during hurricanes or other disaster events.  There will be no cost for entry and I would remind our members that you can bring a guest, which is really intended to encourage potential members to consider our organization.  We are sorry we had to move this meeting on short notice, but the senior staff of the Alligator Farm had to attend an event in Australia and therefore could not host us at our normal time.  Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns about this meeting, or any chapter issues.

Guest Policy

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 $160.00 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!
