A Message from the ACA President

Sending my gratitude to the ACA community this season.

Since I was a child, I have been told by my seniors that time accelerates as you age. I don’t believe I am all that old, but the past two years that I have served as ACA president certainly have been a lesson in accelerated time. So much has changed and so much has been thrown at ACA over the past two years.  The most important message I can impart, as my cycle as president comes to an end, is that ACA is in great shape.
