At this time a physical signature is NOT required on this form. Please contact Ellen at 706.549.4850 or by email with any questions about the background check process.

Step Two: Review The Volunteer Handbook

The Volunteer Handbook has been developed over the years to be an informative resource to go to when questions arise or if you are looking for insight on ACCA’s mission and vision statements, client confidentiality, code of conduct, insurance information, etc. You can find your copy here:

ACCA Volunteer Handbook
