Involvement Opportunities

There are three primary ways in which you can get involved!

  1. Check the Housing and Residential Life Commission box on your ACPA membership application. By doing this, you'll become a member and receive LifeLine, the Commission newsletter. This publication will keep you updated on the activities of the Commission. If you didn't do this on your original membership application, you can log into the ACPA site to update your membership information and join the Commission.
  2. Serve as a member of the directorate body.
  3. Volunteer to assist with the Commission's many services and resources. Below is a list of some of those activities and how you may be able to assist.
