USCA Divisions

USCA is comprised of fourteen Divisions, listed as Organized or Non-organized.

The status of a Division may change as a result of petition and thereby alter its status. The States listed within a Non-organized Regional Division may vary dependent upon the membership composition of the States.
As States may petition to withdraw from a Regional Division and operate as a single entity (State Division) the States listed within the Division may change.
The Membership Chair of the Association maintains current status of the States and Regions.

Currently there are five Organized State & Regional Divisions:
