From the American Citizens Abroad website:
ACA is a non-profit organisation whose mission is to Educate, Advocate and Inform both the US Government and US Citizens living and working overseas on issues of concern to the overseas US Citizen community. ACA works to find practical solutions to resolve issues impacting overseas US Citizens and communicates results to constituents stateside and abroad. ACA is the premier thought-leader on issues affecting US Citizens living and working overseas.
While the US Embassy handles paperwork and government submission requirements for Americans overseas, ACA is an advocacy organization that provides a collective voice for all Americans living abroad. ACA keeps abreast of changes in the laws that affect overseas Americans and lobby for better legislation that protects the rights of these citizens. ACA recently released a free directory of Tax Return Preparers that specifically address the requirements of overseas American ciitizens.
ACA has multiple membership levels within the organization and selected Tendenci as the best membership software solution for their needs. With members living in countries around the world, ACA sought a platform that supports multiple languages, provides flexibilty on membership terms, and allows for multiple forms of payment. Tendenci's open source structure allows ACA to customize page views, online forms, reports and layout elements to meet their specific needs.
The flexible Content Management System included with the Tendenci platform allows ACA to easily post recent changes within the American legislative system to keep the information timely and useful. A full archive provides a historical perspective on the evolution of laws regarding Americans overseas.
