Letter from ACA Executive Director

Dear Members,

In some ways, it’s hard to believe that we’ve been under siege from the COVID-19 pandemic for a year, and in other ways, it seems much longer than that. But, as the vaccine rollout continues to pick up steam, it’s so nice to be able to look forward to a more normal paddling season. In the ACA office, we are excited to see member activity begin to pick up, including course registrations, reports, insurance inquiries, and new events being added to our online calendar. On the Competition front, we are busy planning for our Olympic Team Trials for both Sprint (to be held March 18-20 in Sarasota, Florida) and Slalom (to be held April 12-14 in Charlotte, NC).

These activities, along with the SEIC and Discipline Committee meetings held late last month, remind me that we are extremely fortunate to have so many dedicated volunteers. You are invaluable and irreplaceable, and we sincerely thank you for the many hours you devote to the ACA.

Happy (almost) Spring!

Beth Spilman,
ACA Executive Director
