The Regional Activity Council (RAC) is a National Activity Council for the ACA, providing a voice for ACA members through their Regional Chairs, State Directors, State Councils, and Paddle America Club members.
The RAC represents ACA’s grassroots membership and helps to promote and support the various areas of ACA’s mission: safety, education and instruction, competition, stewardship and public policy, diversity, equity and inclusion, and recreation. The RAC seeks to enhance communication and volunteer activities that benefit the mission and values of the ACA. In addition, this National Activity Council allows ACA leaders to mentor up-and-coming paddlesports leaders in activities related to community building, public policy and stewardship, and regional partnerships. These local ACA volunteers can:
- Help paddlers find local instruction or connect with regional instructor certification opportunities
- Promote competition, training, stewardship and other community-based paddlesports events
- Build coalitions for paddler advocacy initiatives, and much more
The ACA needs your help to support all paddlers accessing America’s waterways in a fun and safe manner. Everything we do is inspired by our passionate and dedicated members.
