JOIN IN AND MAKE YOUR COMMUNITY BETTER
ACA was formed to create an informal organization of associated interest groups through which residents and property owners could meet to improve and protect Arden while maintaining and encouraging a strong sense of community.
See the Arden Calendar for notifications of ACA meetings.
The annual membership contribution is $10.00, but most people see their way to send a little more as the money goes a long way to improving the community in which we all live.
ACA encourages all the residents of Arden to support the various community groups, whether it be financially or through volunteer work. All residents in Arden, both full and part time, lot owners, and property owners of adjacent properties of Arden, age 18 and over are eligible for ACA membership.
HOW IT WORKS: ACA and ABI
ACA is a separate, independent group from ABI. ACA manages Town Hall and has its own Board of Directors, volunteer staff, clubs, projects and program agendas. Although ACA is separate, it holds a representative position on ABI's Board of Directors. The two groups work together to promote a better sense of community and to accomplish their combined goals.
In the 2000s, the Arden Civic Association was incorporated as the Arden Community Association and now serves as the official governing body that organizes the community into activity groups, meets to determine the focus of community interests, and oversees the publication of the NewsBuoy (the official publication of Arden). ACA acts independently of the beach association, collects its operating budget through donations from community members, and maintains its own independent financial and operating records. The single goal of ACA is to keep Arden a desirable place to live for its residents regardless of age, sex, color, religion, etc.
