About the North Texas Chapter

Welcome to the North Texas Chapter of the Association of Clinical Research Professionals (ACRP). We proudly serve the Dallas - Fort Worth Metroplex, and the surrounding areas from West and East TX, to provide up-to-date information, continuing education credits, and networking for the research community. We are a comprehensive organization of clinical research professionals from a variety of backgrounds.

As a chapter of the ACRP, the mission of this organization shall be to provide a readily accessible mechanism for regional program development for clinical research professionals to foster professional interaction, continuing education, problem-solving, and discussion of professional issues.

Joining and Renewing Chapter Membership

ACRP membership is required to join our chapter. ACRP membership offers invaluable global networking and professional development opportunities including access to many resources: Clinical Researcher, The Wire, online communities, discounts on offerings, and more. Select ‘Membership’ from the menu bar on the ACRP home page for more information on the many benefits. 

We look forward to seeing you at our chapter meetings and hope that you will consider becoming more involved in the Chapter at some point by volunteering for a committee or running for a Board Member position.

Benefits of Chapter Membership

Becoming an active member in your local ACRP chapter is a great way to learn more about clinical research in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industry and it also provides many great benefits; a member of the North Texas Chapter of ACRP can expect to receive the following benefit:

  • Obtaining research-related continuing education credits for each speaker meeting you attend – which counts towards certification maintenance
  • Discounted registration for chapter sponsored educational programs
  • Networking in all areas of research with other engaged research professionals
  • A valuable resource for information, training, and employment opportunities
