This chapter, though blessed with a small handful of the most wonderful, hardworking folks you will ever meet, has been polluted by selfish, arrogant, lazy, excuse making people only after a patch. Speaking ONLY of the NW Arkansas chapter. Instead of flaming those who are or have destroyed the chapter, I'll mention the Heroes of the chapter: Hawkeye, Fluff, Scuba, Witchy Woman, Bro, Angel, Rooster, Steamboat, Baby Gurl, Dr. Psycho, Billy Bob. I probably have forgotten a hero or two.

I've been a "supporter" (not a member yet) with BACA of Northwest Arkansas (A local chapter under this state branch) for about six months now, and have been so impressed with the quality and integrity of their "patched members", let alone ALL they are actually accomplishing with children. Every individual permitted to ride on official "events" must be cleared by a National Criminal Investigation Check! (They also must continue to have these NCICs done throughout their memberships). I have absolutely no reservations in fully recommending this non-profit organization. I am also a long-time volunteer with CASA.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I have participated in every chapter meeting and other events for about six months now, and with my background in mental health, working with abused and neglected kids, I can see the value and impact of their services. I've also seen their support and coordination with CASA.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Provide more financial resources for greater community impact.
