What is ACA?

Your Arden Community Association (ACA)

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 as well as organizing official committees for specific purpose and determined projects.

Our Mission

ACA is devoted to representing each of you and being your voice on a civic level. 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. We are focused on increasing homeowner participation by creating structure where residents feel valued and a part of the team. We can't do any of this without you!
