Thanks to Omar and Jessica of Paddle Paradise, ACA Puerto Rican members threw a fiesta for the State Directors to kick off the ACA's State Director Conference in Gurabo, PR this weekend.
ACA members from Alaska to Florida joined together for a working, yet fun, weekend. From dinner at Barrachina's (where the Pina Colada was invented) in Old Town San Juan to kayaking in the bioluminescent bay in Fajardo, the conference had plenty of time for networking opportunities.
But, when the State Directors rolled up their sleeves for the working portion of the conference, a significant amount of positive synergy was achieved. From discussions on how to handle potential boat registrations to enhanced social media techniques (thanks Tim Chandler!) to how to provide better benefits to members in each state, the volunteer State Directors are working hard on behalf of paddlers across the United States.
