Greetings and Salutations!
There is not too much to report on this month. Hopefully, June will bring us some news that I can report to you. Life has been on cruise control and that, my friends, is a very good thing.
THE CONVENTION IS COMING!
THE CONVENTION IS COMING!
If you haven’t made your reservations at the hotel or registered, you are quickly running out of time. These busy lives we lead often make us forget to do things and they slip away. The Awards Banquet has only so many seats available, so be sure to register for that, too. Pork or Chicken and great times, too. www.acaconvention2017.com
It’s that time again. The ACA is looking for a few good men and/or women to help lead it. If you are interested in running for the BOT please send a short bio to Daryl Hutchins, my election Co-Chair (email@example.com). Even though the election process is all automated, I am distancing myself from it due to the fact that I am BOT Chair this year.
Take the time to get involved!

What a great idea! One of our members who runs a cichlid-related business had the idea of giving some of his clients Gift Memberships to the ACA. So, if you don’t know what to give someone for their birthday, Christmas gift, graduation or just to be a friend, give them the gift of cichlids! A membership to the ACA is a great way to say you care!
The recipient gets a great email letter from the ACA telling them who the gift is from, along with an email welcoming them to the ACA and the CRC. Remember, you are not only giving them a gift membership to the ACA and all of our fine benefits but also a subscription to the Cichlid Room Companion. What a deal!
Speaking of membership, since all of our membership tracking is now done automatically with a program watched over by Juan Miguel Artigas Azas, the need for an actual Membership Chair is gone. The ACA will still have two Membership Coordinators that you can turn to for help with any membership situations. They are Claudia Dickinson and Juan Miguel Artigas Azas. Membership is in great hands with them.
That’s all for now. Remember the ACA cannot function without good leadership so consider running for the BOT.
Have a great day!
