American Citizens Abroad, Inc. (ACA, Inc.), the voice of Americans overseas, is a Washington, DC based, non-profit, nonpartisan, volunteer organization representing the interests of Americans living and working outside the US to the Executive Branch, Congressional and Judicial branches of the US Government.
ACA’s mission is to bring to the attention of the US Government the issues and concerns facing the community of Americans overseas and to work with Congress and other branches of government on solutions to problems facing this community. ACA also actively looks for ways to improve the lives of Americans overseas and works to implement these.
ACA, Inc. sets annual goals depending on the current legislative initiatives and changes in law. Our volunteer staff work in teams structured around key areas of concern for our constituents: taxation, banking access, representation, citizenship, voting, etc.
ACA develops specific efforts behind current issues (write-in campaigns, meetings with legislators, etc.). ACA representatives meet with relevant offices of the Congress and Administration in Washington, DC; work on communications campaigns, interface with contacts in the government, media, industry; research and stay informed on issue developments.
ACA activities are monitored monthly at our Executive Committee meetings and reported to our members and supporters via our electronic communications; newsletter, website postings, Facebook, etc.
The ACA Executive Director and Legal Counsel are based in Washington, DC and have primary responsibility for contact with Congress and the Administration. ACA also maintains offices in Geneva, Switzerland where the organization was first established and where some members of the Board and Executive Committee are based. ACA Board and Executive Committee members are based worldwide to ensure that ACA has a global understanding of the issues affecting overseas Americans.
