The ACT Rowing Association is the peak rowing body for the Australian Capital Territory and South East New South Wales.
The Association’s primary functions are to foster the sport in the region, and to control regattas within the region. All rowing clubs in the region that wish to take part in races within Australia must be affiliated with the Association.
A committee runs the Association and is elected annually. The Committee meets monthly.
ACTRA is an incorporated association under its own constitution and by-laws.
