ACA Needs Your Help: Play a part in recruiting new members. (Membership News).

June is National Membership Month. You know the benefits of American Correctional Association (ACA) membership, so why not encourage your colleagues to become ACA members, too? Urge them to join the Association and take advantage of the great opportunities and valuable benefits that ACA membership offers. Opportunities await them to learn, network and participate.

June 1 officially begins National Membership Month, a month-long member-get-a-member campaign to encourage prospective members to join ACA. Association staff, chapters, affiliates, members and colleagues will be called upon to recruit correctional employees for ACA membership.

Members will:

* Learn the latest advances in corrections at training seminars and conference workshops, and ACA's premier Online Corrections Academy will enhance their knowledge and help advance their career possibilities.

* Network with other corrections professionals whose expertise includes health care, information management, technology, juvenile justice, mental health, safety and security, and much more.

* Participate by becoming involved in ACA and being part of the process, such as serving on a committee to influence change or work with their state chapters to have their voices heard.

Additionally, ACA members receive seven issues of Corrections Today magazine and five issues of On the Line newsletter per year, $6,000 Accidental Death and Dismemberment Insurance, discounts on videos, publications and training on leading issues and topics, discount member rates to ACA conferences, reduced fees on correspondence courses and the Online Corrections Academy, a personalized membership card and certificate, the option to receive an ACA platinum credit card at a low annual percentage rate, car rental discounts and discounted benefit group savings by Liberty Mutual Insurance Co.

Begin recruiting by sharing the opportunities ACA offers to learn, network and participate. Have recruits complete a membership application (if you are not yet an ACA member, you also must complete a membership application). Fax completed applications to (301) 928-0557, or mail to American Correction Association, Membership Services, 4380 Forbes Blvd., Lanham, MD 20706. For faster service, new members may join ACA online at

Encourage as many people as you can to join and do not forget to include your name and membership number, as top recruiters will be eligible to win prizes. The more members you sponsor, the better your chance to win prizes, including $500 cash, gift certificates toward ACA publications, ACA GearWear, and gift certificates to nationwide stores such as Best Buy, Kohl's and Wal-Mart.

The time is now. If you are not an ACA member, make a commitment to yourself and join today. If you already are a member, share the opportunities to learn, network and participate with others.
