In 1976, fifteen Activity Coordinators met in Berkeley, California. Out of that group of concerned individuals, NCCAC became a reality. Activity Coordinators continue to come together at our yearly Educational Conference to share their experiences, elect new officers, and elect an Activity Coordinator of the Year. We are unsung heroes (or heroines), and can be a great support system.
In California there are two associations that represent Activity Professionals. The Northern California Council of Activity Coordinators, (NCCAC) and the Southern California Association on Activity Professionals (SCAAP). NCCAC covers the counties north of San Luis Obisbo all the way to the Oregon border. Our colligues SCAAP covers the ten southern counties including San Luis Obisbo.
