ACA sponsors and supports California State Legislation to develop, enhance, and safeguard our airports.
Through its website and list server, ACA members can keep in touch and connected to other member airports; this keeps up-to-date issues in front of our airports and provides valuable information on a regular basis.
ACA hosts an annual conference, providing a wide range of information in an interactive forum that allows  all attendees to participate.  The conference is affordable and conducted in a manner that brings together the diverse membership of ACA.
Aerospace & Aviation Days is an annual event that is presented by ACA, along with its aviation partner community.  The purpose of the event is to remind legislators about the benefits of having an airport in their districts.  It is also an avenue  to get issues in front of the legislature.
Each Board of Director represents an area in California (or District).  The Responsibility Map is broken into Nine (9) Districts related to the Nine (9) Districts represented by the ACA Board of Directors.  The Listing by airport name shows which District the Airport is located in.  The Board of Directors page indicates which District each Board member represents.
Committees assist the Board in making decisions relative to the topic of the committee.  If you would like to serve on a committee, just contact any Board member.  The ACA Standing & Special Committees are:
