The ACA Board of Directors voted to accept the recommendation of volunteer leaders at the Fall 2010 Meeting of Volunteers from each Section/Affiliate/Field Office that the ACA Council of Delegates be sunsetted and replaced by a National Council of Leaders (NCOL). The NCOL:

  • Will provide a forum for internal ACA voices to address both internal and external emerging issues and trends, feedback on ACA Board of Director action, and generative thinking in order to have relevant and meaningful influence on the work of the Association.
  • Will serve as a formal representative body to the ACA Board of Directors.
  • Will have one member from each assigned geographic area of the country (each affiliate or field office) preferably the chair of the LCOL or Board president of an affiliate.  Each member on the NCOL would meet the criteria outlined on the Volunteer Leadership Summary.
  • Will be convened on a year-round basis (in-person, virtual, calls, blogs, email, etc.).  The National Council of Leaders will meet with the ACA Board of Directors at the ACA National Conference.
