BUILDING RELATIONSHIPS ACROSS AMERICA
About the aca business club
Since the earliest days of this great country Americans have come together to form clubs for fun and fellowship. Private clubs have always been the venue of choice for building high quality relationships, networking and entertaining.
The American Club Association (ACA) was originally established as an association of private golf, tennis, city and country clubs serving the leading demographic across the country - private club members. Private club members represent a wide variety of industries and professions, including CEO's, business owners, executives, professionals, and more.
The founders of the ACA had a vision to build high quality, professional relationships within the private club setting, to create unique and expanded opportunities to entertain clients and colleagues, and to develop one of the most elite and influential networks in the country. The founders soon discovered that the synergy created by their cooperative efforts began to significantly benefit not only their own careers and clubs, but also their local communities.
The ACA was originally headquartered at the historic Kansas City Club located in downtown Kansas City, Missouri. The Kansas City Club has quite a history: Founded in 1882, notable members included General Omar Bradley, Dwight D. Eisenhower and Harry S. Truman. However, after 130 years the Kansas City Club closed its doors. In an effort to keep its outstanding tradition alive, a 21st-Century version of the Kansas City Club was launched - the ACA Business Club.
The ACA Business Club was designed to serve the needs of executives, professionals and business owners, with an emphasis on professional and business development. Interest in the ACA Business Club grew quickly and, as a result, the ACA is now expanding Business Clubs across the nation.
From the beginning, the ACA has been committed to the highest standards of integrity, service and excellence, as well as upholding the values and traditions of private clubs. Membership in the ACA Business Club is by invitation only; and only members committed to these qualities are invited to join. Membership candidates must be sponsored by a current member (willing to place their reputation on the line), and they must also be approved - and endorsed - by the Business Club's Board of Directors. New members join the Business Club as individuals; then represent their company or organization.
There are, of course, many outstanding private clubs across the country, however the ACA Business Club is unique in the following ways:
