Congratulations to Debra Ciskey, ICA Past President, for being elected to the
ACA International Board of Directors.
On July 18, 2012, the inaugural ACA International Council of Delegates met to
elect directors to the association’s new 15-member board. The election completes
the governance transition that began when the association’s members
approved bylaw changes and a plan to modernize ACA’s structure in March 2012.
