Are you interested in being a leader in the CRM industry? Now is your opportunity to join ACRA leadership - ACRA is seeking dedicated members who are interested in serving on the Board of Directors.

ACRA’s board of directors consists of 7 officers (2-year terms), 3 designated seats based on firm size (3-year terms), and 11 at-large members (3-year terms). Members are able to serve two terms of office consecutively.

Positions that are up for election in 2019 include:
