|Steps to Transitioning to ACA Insurance|
One of the previous benefits of USACK membership was access to USACK’s Insurance Program through local paddling clubs, teams, and affiliate organizations. However, as of December 1, 2015, USACK no longer has an insurance program for paddling clubs and events. We just wanted to let you know that as part of the ACA / USACK combination process, the ACA will be a provider of insurance services for USACK affiliate organizations, paddling clubs, teams, events and hulls.
USACK Insurance Coverage for 2017:
USACK will once again not be able to offer club or event insurance in 2017. In order to have insurance coverage for your club or race, you can either join the ACA as a Paddle America Club and access the ACA's insurance, or you will need to find another insurance provider.
Complimentary 1-year ACA membership for 2016:
All USACK members, who were not already an ACA member, have been provided, at no cost to them, a 1-year membership to the ACA running from December 2, 2015 to December 1, 2016. This will assist in ensuring a smooth transition to the insurance program. However, on your ACA membership renewal date in 2016, you will be invoiced for the next year, assuming you choose to continue with your ACA membership. Likewise, all USACK Paddling Clubs and Affiliate Organizations have been given, at no cost to them, the equivalent ACA membership for the same timeframe.
ACA Login for your complementary 1-year ACA membership:
Please note, the above does not affect your USACK membership or USACK membership renewal process. This is simply an option for you to secure insurance services through your USACK Paddling Club or Affiliate Organization should you so desire. We realize there might be some transitional challenges associated with this insurance process. Please contact the ACA Insurance Department if a club or an individual member needs assistance.
In order for this insurance coverage transition to occur, the following needs to occur:
Members of USACK Paddling Clubs
*If you are a member of a USACK Paddling Club that uses insurance, the club insurance coordinator should reach out to you shortly about this transition of insurance processes.
Paddling Club Insurance
Your Paddling Club needs to submit new paperwork to the ACA if they would like to use ACA Insurance:
If your Club uses Hull Insurance for boats or other equipment, the club needs to submit new paperwork to the ACA.
Please contact the ACA Insurance Department if a club or an individual member needs assistance.
