Due to feedback from the U.S. Olympic Committee (USOC) staff late last week, the process and timeline has been changed.

  • February 17
    • ACA will submit it's application to become the National Governing Body(NGB) for paddlesports
    • USOC senior staff will review
  • March 9
    • USOC Board of Directors will review NGB application

Potential next steps moving forward:

  • If the USOC provides initial approval of the NGB application:
    • There will be a formal Comment Period on the application and revisions to the ACA Bylaws
    • There will be an ACA Membership Vote (online &/or mailed ballot)
  • If the USOC does not initially approve the NGB application:
    •  ACA and USACK will remain separate entities and the ACA will reevaluate our current management agreement with USACK
