Have you been thinking about joining the ACA but aren't entirely sure what the benefits are to you? Maybe turn the question around and ask what the benefits are for you and others. To that end you might wonder "What does the ACA do?" Here's how Alan R. DeAngelo, the current Chair of the ACA Board of Trustees and editor of the newsletter, answered that question in this month's newsletter:
The question came up about the relevancy of the ACA. It's just a fish club, right?
In addition to the above benefits, membership provides access to the monthly newsletter, the Buntbarsche Bulletin (ACA's journal), a registration discount to the annual convention, and access to the Cichlid Room Companion (perhaps the single best online resource for cichlid information).
In my opinion, all cichlid enthusiasts should become an ACA member. The organization does many great things for cichlids and the hobby.
