Welcome to the Western Regional Chapter

of the American Coach Association

April 19, 2020


The planned merger of the Southern California, NorCal/Northwest and Southwest Chapters of the American Coach Association is now underway and the By-Laws for the new, combined Western Regional Chapter have been approved. Press here to download a copy of the newly formed Chapter’s By-Laws.

All of the current members of the merged individual Chapters are automatically members of the new Western Regional Chapter. The annual dues for membership in the Western Regional Chapter are $15.00, due July 1st.

The officers of the new Chapter are:

President: Robert Clapper (former Southern California Chapter)
Vice President: John Carr (former NorCal/Northwest Chapter)
Vice President: Doug Anderson (former Southwest Chapter)
Secretary: Patricia Adams
Treasurer: Marilyn Wheeler
Membership Chairperson: Debbie Darby

In order for the National ACA Board to retain the same amount of input from the geographies covered by each of the former Chapters as before the merger, the two Vice Presidents, as well as the President, will represent the new Chapter on the National Board.

Work is now underway to obtain a tax ID for the new Chapter, consolidate the books, records and accounts of the three former separate Chapters, to replace the now separate web sites for each with one common website, and to notify the taxing authorities that the former Chapters have been dissolved.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns in this regard, and welcome to the new Western Regional Chapter!
