    The ACC encourages all paddlers to remain aware of issues that are before the Arkansas Department of Environmental Quality, especially those that relate to watersheds. The ADEQ has in place a process to subscribe to various email distribution lists to receive alerts regarding environmental issues in Arkansas. For instance, you can subscribe to the "Arkansas Watersheds" email list or the "Buffalo River Action Committee" list. attached is a link to the page to sign up for these email lists.


    Also consider signing up to receive communications from the Arkansas Pollution, Control and Ecology Commission.  It is arguably the ultimate policy-setting body on environmental issues in Arkansas.

    I’m happy to announce that we have added a few new Membership Levels. We now offer 2-year and 3-year memberships, both of which will offer discounts off of the $25 per year membership fee for those who choose to receive the newsletter electronically. When your membership is next up for renewal, you can choose one of these multi-year options. With the electronic newsletter discount, 2 year memberships will cost $45, and 3 year memberships will cost $65. If you choose to receive the newsletter via hardcopy in the mail, there won’t be a discount, but you will enjoy the benefit of not having to worry about renewing your membership as often!

    I am also excited to announce the addition of a Junior Membership for Students (those age 25 or younger are eligible). Unlike our traditional “Household” membership which covers everyone in the household, the Student membership will be only for a single individual, and will include electronic newsletter delivery for just $10 per year. We hope that this new option will encourage more young people to join the club: if you know some young people that you think would be interested in joining, please let them know about this new option!

    How do I switch to a 2 or 3 year membership?

    When your current membership is set to expire, login at the ACC Home page (not to be confused with logging in at the ACC Message Board which uses a different login). Remember that your ACC Member login is your email address and your password. If you have never logged in as a member, then you can set your password for the first time by using the “forgot password” link.

    After you login, go to Member Profile. You will see 2 buttons in your Member Details area: one to CHANGE your membership level, and one to RENEW your membership for one year. If it is time for you to renew but you want to pay for 2 or 3 years instead of just 1, then you will need to select CHANGE your membership level and select which multi-year option you would like. If you select RENEW, then it will only give you the option to renew at your current (1 year) level.

    If you currently have a multiple login/multiple profile membership for multiple household members, make sure you choose the multi-year option that also allows for multiple logins/multiple profiles.

    Please be aware that if you CHANGE your membership level when your membership is not due, then you will be charged for a new membership term and your renewal date will change to the date of your membership change. To avoid paying for a new membership before your current membership expires, only CHANGE membership levels at the time you are scheduled to renew.

    Many of you have been aware of and perhaps vexed by many technical problems we have had with the message board dating back several months: the auto login feature stopped working and some people could no longer pull the site up on some computers. With our webmaster/message board administrator positions currently vacant, we struggled to work out these bugs, and each new attempt to resolve old problems seemed to bring new issues. Happily, we appear to FINALLY have resolved the major issues which caused these technical glitches, and more recently, the repeated crashes.

    You'll notice the board now is back to a user-friendly address: If you do not regularly clear your computer's cache and delete old cookies, then you might have trouble logging in at the message board or staying logged in the first time you visit at the new url. If you clear your browser's cache and cookies (or at least the "phpBB3" cookies associated with our message board), then your login should work again. If you are not sure how to clear cookies, you can find instructions here:'s-Cookies

    Thank you to everyone for your patience as we worked to resolve these problems.

    Details about the 2010 School of Whitewater Paddling are now available on the website under Events.

    Registration will open March 8, 2010.  Classes fill up quickly, so individuals should register early.

    Did you know...

    That 2010 will be the 35th year of this annual event? THIRTY-FIVE YEARS!!! That's impressive!

    What the heck is TEFKACS??? Why that's what the School of Whitewater Paddling is: it's The Event Formerly Known As Canoe School. Actually, you'll still hear a lot of folks still call the event "Canoe School."

    Scores of volunteers donate their time, energy, and expertise to make this annual event successful every year.
