What is ACA?

The Arden Community Association (ACA) is the official not-for-profit 501(c)4 within Arden on the Severn serving as the community's liaison and voice with local, state and federal jurisdictions as well as other local activist groups related to environmental and infrastructure issues affecting our community. The ACA is the trustee of the Arden's community building (Town Hall), responsible for managing operations and maintenance of the building and grounds. The ACA is the community "hub" for various committees and clubs organized for the betterment of Arden. Membership in the ACA is voluntary and resident support is critical for its success. Be sure to JOIN US!

Originally established in July 1955 as the community's civic association for Sunrise Beach/Arden on the Severn, ACA continues to serve as the community's official organization representing all residents and serving as your liaison within the community and between the community and your local and state jurisdictions, as well as other neighboring civic organizations sharing similar interests. ACA is the only authorized organization to represent Arden on the Severn on local community boards and meets monthly to determine the focus of community interests, concerns pertaining development and infrastructure affecting the community, as well as organizing official committees for specific purpose and determined projects.

Our Mission

The ACA is devoted to representing each of you and being your voice on a civic level on community issues. We promote teamwork, communication, and transparency as we work to make a positive contribution as the organization representing our community. Our foundation is based around maintaining, enhancing, and protecting the value of our property as well as promoting community comradery. The ACA works in conjunction with Arden Beaches, Inc. (ABI) in the management and operations of Arden's private beach and park properties. We are focused on increasing homeowner participation by creating structure where residents feel valued and a part of the team. Join us in strengthening our community. We can't do any of this without you!
