ACA EXECUTIVE BOARD & SECTION DELEGATES

President

Kim is a life-long, 3rd generation Arden resident and a retired Financial Manager from Anne Arundel County Government. After 31 years of service, she have committed her spare time to giving back to the community. Using her skills and knowledge of County operations and services that benefit our community, as well as her experience in budgeting, spending, revenue management, information technology, supervision, office management, program management, and project management, she is always looking for ways to improve the quality of life for Arden residents. She appreciates and respects a good team and forward progress. She believes community is absolutely crucial to the team's success and appreciates all of you!

Vice President

Stacy Henderson

Stacy has previously served as Secretary for the ACA and is a successful real estate agent making her mark in the community. Her energy and desire to be involved and assist in any way she can is much appreciated by all.

Claire and her husband Sean and son live in Section 1. Claire compliments the position of treasurer with her experience with financials using QuickBooks. She has some great, innovative ideas to help the ACA move forward in the technology world. She is excited to support community outreach efforts and volunteers time to serve as a support specialist to the ABI Registrar to alleviate some of the responsibility by managing watercraft storage rack request processing and beach reservations to allow the Registrar to vocus on annual registration and amenity processing. Claire is a great addition to our team and to both our community organizations.

Cindy and her husband Matt and daughter Jocelyn moved to Arden (Section 1) a few years ago from Laurel and have quickly become integrated with Arden's organizations through their devoted volunteerism. Cindy served ABI as the Registrar for a season before taking on another job and is now helping us with ACA.
