This message is being posted at the request of Pat Adams, our new president. Somehow, the scammers have been able to hack our membership list and personalize the email, making it look like it is an actual request for funds assistance.
This situation could not be farther from the truth. It is totally bogus, and no one in the association is soliciting your assistance for any cause or association.
It is not not condoned or solicited by anyone or any officer in the association. Please do not open or send any $$ to anyone on their behalf - just delete the email - the last time they did this, they had asked for gift cards to be purchased - and to call a number and read them the card numbers. It never quits. My concern is that if you attempt to respond to the email as presented, you may encounter malware as well.
Just please delete any attempts to have you "help by sending money" to anyone - if you indeed received the email - read it carefully - you will find that, if you reply, you will potentially be further attacked - and all references are not authorized ACA addresses. This thing is really pretty good. It even has Pat's signature block at the bottom of the email - Be safe - look at all addresses from our Association - delete anything you don't recognize.
Our new chapter is the result of the merger of the former NorCal/Norwest, Southern California and Southwest Chapters.
The merger of these chapters was voted on and approved by the general membership of the American Coach Association. The By-laws of our new Western Regional Chapter have been written and recently approved. The By-Laws will be posted to our new website real soon. If you would like a copy in the meantime, please let one of the Officers know and they will certainly be happy to send you an email copy.
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
Membership Chairperson and Treasurer: Debbie Darby
In an effort to provide similar representation of the same geographical areas of the previous chapters to the National ACA Board, The President and two Vice Presidents will maintain a vote on the national board.
All members that were current with one of the merged Chapters are automatically members of our new Western Regional Chapter. The annual dues for membership in the Western Regional Chapter are $15.00 per year. All members due date for dues will be July 1st annually.
Our board has agreed to give members credit for the dues they may have been paid previously to one of the 3 chapters. I have include in an attached word document that has a list of members that are paid into 2021 with a few others into 2022/23.
SO if you do not see your name on that list your dues are due on or before July 1st 2020 . In other words, NOW! Please also see the attached application form, which should be used to mail your dues to Debbie Darby, our membership Chair person.
Work is now underway to obtain a tax ID for our new Chapter, consolidate the books, records and accounts of the three former Chapters, to put together a new Website for our chapter and work with our national treasurers to notify the taxing authorities that the former Chapters have been dissolved.
