The newest issue of ACA News is available
ACA Newsletter Issue 97 Summer 2017
New recertification guidelines, new officers to serve next year, highlight of our Secretariat, Abby Curro, reports from regents, and more. A lot of new information that may be of interest and use during the coming months and year.
The Website updates for the new Recertification Petition Guidelines were a work in progress during the time of the 2017 meeting in Portland.
If for any reason you downloaded instructions or other information about recertification, from new links handed out at the meeting, before July 31, 2017, we strongly recommend downloading them again. While some pages were updated before that time, some were not.
Don’t get caught with the wrong information! (After the 31st of July, the updates were complete.) If you have questions regarding your information’s accuracy, you may contact the appropriate regent at firstname.lastname@example.org.
