What is ACP International?

The Association of Career Professionals International (“ACP International”) is a global organization dedicated to advancing public awareness of the career management profession, as well as in promoting the international profile and credibility of its varied membership.

Originally established as an International Association of Outplacement Professionals (IAOP) in 1989, then renamed as International Association of Career Management Professionals (IACMP) in 1994, we are now the Association of Career Professionals International (ACP International), and we continue to evolve and adapt with the trends and developments in our profession.

Our members understand the changing needs of the business and services world and through continuous professional development, marketing and networking opportunities offered in this association, we keep current with the latest career trends and issues that challenge people in their work and life journey. We also offer expansive opportunities for local connection through our ACPI Networks.
