ACA Amends Membership Structure

A

t its annual meeting in July, ACA
International's Council of Delegates
approved an amendment to the
ACA bylaws on membership structure.
The approved amendment removes the
multi-office requirement to create one
ACA membership inclusive of reporting
all full-time employees in all locations and
requiring the member to maintain at least
one Unit membership where it maintains its
primary office.
The concept was introduced to the Council
of Delegates in March 2020 following review
and recommendation by the Membership
Strike Force, chaired by Board Member Jack
Brown III, president of Gulf Coast Collection
Bureau in Sarasota, Florida.
"The focus of the Membership Strike
Force was to better reflect ACA members'
size composition and provide a more
efficient application and renewal process,"
Brown said. "The decision also eliminates
confusion as to what constitutes an 'office,'
especially since agencies have modified their

operations to include work-from-home
agents and remote sales staff."
The agency member committee and several
membership task forces previously reviewed
the multi-office membership requirement
and reached a consensus to change the
"per office" membership structure.

Secretary at corporate.secretary@
acainternational.org for more information.
