The American Cuemaker's Association was formed in 1992 to promote the American made cue as a unique collectable art form. We are composed of cuemakers, merchants in the billiards industry, and other supporters.
WHAT WE ARE NOT:
We are not a group who teaches people how to make cues. We do not provide information on equipment or supplies needed to make cues, and we do not provide sources for materials.
All membership in the ACA is contingent upon the approval of the Membership Committee. If the committee is aware of any adverse information concerning the applicant such as personal behavior that would reflect adversely on the ACA , the membership application may be turned down.
TYPES OF MEMBERSHIP:
Voting Members. Voting Membership is restricted to cuemakers who make cues within the fifty United States of America. Cuemakers who make cues outside of the United States of America or use parts (other than raw materials) imported from outside the United States are not eligible for voting membership.

NOTE: The Board of Directors may impose some restrictions as to which merchandise is or is not appropriate for ACA events.
