All About Us

Inland Empire ACBS was started from members who were already members of other chapters in the northwest.  We realized there was a core of members and even more to be added in northern Idaho and eastern Washington, a group petitioned to be recognized as a chapter in 2000. Inland Empire Chapter  is still part of the northwest group of chapters (Columbia Willamette, Pacific Northwest, Big Sky and Okanagan Chapters) and we coordinate our events throughout the summer so that there is always a near-by boat show with no overlapping conflicts. 

By now, Inland Empire members come from far and wide, as do event participants, just to be in the beautiful scenery and in the clear lakes with their vintage boats.
