The Alabama Coroners Association (ACA) was founded in 1956 in an effort to elevate the Office of Coroner in Alabama through uniformity in the handling of death investigations, improving educational and training opportunities, and by working closely with the Alabama Legislature on related legislation.

Active Membership is open to all duly elected or appointed County Coroners, Deputy County Coroners, Medical Examiners, and the Director of the Alabama Department of Forensic Sciences.
