As the nation's oldest and largest paddlesports non-profit, the ACA has built a strong reputation on making the world a better place to paddle through numerous Education, Stewardship, Exploration, and Competition initiatives. As a national organization, it can be difficult to know all the paddling issues in every state. To that end, the ACA State Directors have volunteered to bridge the gap between paddlers on the ground and the ACA.
The mission of the State Director Program is to increase the effectiveness of the ACA at the state level by:
- Facilitating communication between paddlers and the ACA National Office
- Fostering community responsibility in protecting and preserving paddling environments
- Assisting others with acquiring the necessary skills to safely enjoy local waterways
- Promoting paddlesport competition at the local and state level
State Directors have the opportunity to enlist additional volunteers in the form of an Executive Council to aid in the distribution of responsibilities. State Executive Council elections will be held in the fall of 2014. • State Director - Responsibilities • State Director Program - Governance • State Director Program - Finances
The ACA needs your help to support all paddlers accessing America's waterways in a fun and safe manner. Everything we do is inspired by our passionate and dedicated members.
