Since 1978, ACA, Inc. has been the Voice of Americans Overseas, defending your rights as a US citizen living abroad. For only $70 a year you can help ACA with its important work on behalf of Americans living and working overseas.

As a member of ACA, Inc. you will have direct representation in Washington for your issues.  Our team meets with the legislature and key offices as well as legislators to draw attention to and educate members of the legislature to the issues and concerns of the overseas community.  ACA, Inc. informs its membership via our rich database of information found on our website, through our monthly mailings of our newsletter and updates via our Facebook page and Tweets.

In order to better serve our members we've created two new ACA entities. While ACA has developed steadily over its entire thirty-six year history, it has grown particularly rapidly in the past two years, as certain US legislative and tax enforcement issues have grown in importance and have caused increased hardship to the community of Americans living and working outside of the United States.

Therefore, ACA created ACA, Inc. which will allow us to be more effective and more official in our contacts with Congress and the Administration, in our work of protecting and advancing the interests of the millions of Americans living abroad. 

ACA, Inc. is a social welfare organization, incorporated under Delaware law and was created in February of 2013 under the official name "American Citizens Abroad, Incorporated."  In order to work more effectively for our members, ACA was reorganized under US regulations for non-profits.

ACA also created the ACA Global Foundation (a section 501(c)(3) charitable organization), which allows us to offer contributors a US tax deduction for donations.
FAQs for both ACA, Inc. and ACA Global Foundation are here.
