This year’s Dixie Division Meeting will be held at Webster Baptist Church in Sylva, NC. All ACA members registered in the Dixie Division are invited to attend, as are any other paddlers interested in the ACA or the ACA’s Dixie Division. Over the next year, we’re hoping to offer a series of instructor updates, coordinate the second ACA Swiftwater Rescue Conference, help coordinate the ACA annual meeting, and work with the national office to develop a member recruitment incentive program. Most importantly, we hope to better identify and respond to the needs of ACA members in the Division.
If you have feedback or suggestions for the Dixie Division, but can’t attend the meeting, please reply privately to the Division Chair, Robin Pope (firstname.lastname@example.org).
