AACRAO and the state and regional associations (ACRAOs) share the same basic goals of enhancing not only the profession but also the professional development of the individual members. One of the fundamental strengths of our profession is the vitality
of strong, active state and regional associations. These associations provide members with many professional development activities and opportunities and generally are instrumental in forging the informal networks that exist throughout the country.
AACRAO's Vice President of Leadership and Management Development and AACRAO's State and Regional Relations Committee formulate and share responsibility for AACRAO's relationship with state and regional associations.
