T

he ACA International Board of
Directors governs the affairs,

activities and concerns of your
association. The board consists of 15
voting members elected by ACA's Council
of Delegates, plus the CEO and past
president as nonvoting members. Board
terms are staggered, and elections are
held in conjunction with ACA's Annual
Convention & Expo each summer.
On July 14, the Council of Delegates
elected four board members to serve
three-year terms: Dennis J. Barton III,
LaDonna Bohling, Michael Klutho and
Brian Watkins.
Your new board represents a diverse
group of industry leaders who bring a
wealth of experience to ACA. To help
association members get to know their
