Like most organizations, the ACA is working diligently on a daily basis on issues that are important to the paddlesports world, today and for the foreseeable future. Our current Strategic Tenets of Education, Competition, Stewardship, and Recreation guide us in pursuing our mission.
In addition to the work we are currently undertaking, the ACA is unique from other organizations due to what we've done throughout our history. For the past 129 years, the ACA has supported a wide range of paddlesports initiatives across the country. From being the National Governing Body for the U.S. Olympic Committee for paddlesports to working with a U.S. Senator for a local dam removal, the ACA has a significant record of serving as the primary resource for the paddling community.
