Happy New Year !!!

I want to take a moment of your time and thank each of you who took the time to participate in our recent bylaw votes. We, your board of directors are grateful that you took the time to read and evaluate all information before you and then cast your vote.

All voting was handled by an independent vendor, who processed the ballot information, sent ballots via email listing for current eligible members, and tallied the votes.

Kind regards,
Tony Ford,
American Coach Association National President
