President's Message

Another ACA National has come and gone and I am sure we all will hold special memories of the 2015 National. I know there were several firsts for me and I'm guessing I am not alone. We experienced a Michael Jackson concert as well as some mechanical bull rides that might just make it on America's Funniest Video show. There certainly wasn't a lack of entertainment for the week and I hope everyone enjoyed themselves as much as I did. Special Congratulations to all the winners, I am sure all of you are still on cloud nine and rightfully so. READ MORE>>
