VOLUNTEER TO HELP PADDLESPORTS IN YOUR STATE The ACA’s four initiatives: Education, Stewardship, Exploration, and Competition are an integral part of accomplishing the mission of the State Director Program, which focuses on improving all aspects of paddlesports at the state level.


ACA State Executive Council members are volunteers who represent their state’s paddlers and communicate their needs to the ACA, and work with the ACA to provide support for local initiatives.


State Executive Council members are elected to two year terms. The inaugural terms will end in early 2017. Online nominations for State Executive Council positions will open in November 2016.

INTERNATIONAL WHITEWATER HALL OF FAME


The ACA is pleased to announce a partnership with the IWHoF. IWHoF is an organization founded to recognize and honor individuals from around the world who have made significant contributions to all aspects of whitewater paddling.


IWHoF is now a program of the ACA and its international paddlesports partners.


The next call for nominations for whitewater Explorers, Pioneers, Competitors and Advocates will take place in early 2017.

ACA Public Policy Chief, Lou Metzger, has spent a lot of time in D.C. this spring and summer urging Senators and Representatives to support legislation to fully and permanently fund the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF). The LWCF, created with bipartisan approval in 1965, is funded not by tax dollars but by revenues generated through offshore oil and gas extraction. “It was a simple idea: use revenues from the depletion of one natural resource—offshore oil and gas—to support the conservation of another precious resource —our land and water.”


In addition, at the request of Jordan Messerer, ACA State Director for Nebraska, the ACA Stewardship Department wrote a letter to Nebraska’s Department of Natural Resources in support of allowing the Nebraska DNR and Natural Resource Districts to manage local water use to assure flow in the Niobrara River sufficient to preserve and sustain the wildlife and recreational use of Nebraska’s premier recreation river.


In Iowa, the ACA sent a letter to the Mayor and City Council of Waterloo supporting plans to modify a section of the Park Ave dam on the Cedar River to lessen the hazard of drowning in the backflow, plus create a whitewater park similar to others in the state.
