Do you qualify for this initiative? There are two conditions for your participation:
  1. You may not be a current ACDA member. This initiative is for new ACDA members only (or if your membership has been lapsed for at least three years).
  2. You must reside in a state that has chosen to participate in the program. We will be posting those states in the list below - states will be opting in throughout the fall. (Has your state not opted in yet? You may click here to go to our page that links to state ACDA websites. Contact your state president to inquire as to the state plans.)
To join ACDA through this initiative:
  1. Verify that your state is participating in the program (check the list below).
  2. Download the membership application and complete it (you must use a paper form for this program). Click here for that document.
  3. Send your completed form and a $5 check (made out to your state ACDA, e.g., "Louisiana ACDA") to the contact listed for your state below. Checks should be made out to ACDA. States will bundle their student applications, so it will take a little longer to process your application - check with your state representative if you have questions.
  4. The deadline for joining ACDA under this program is June 30, 2014 - though some states have set an earlier deadline, or limited the number of available memberships under the program. Check in the list below to see if there are restrictions noted - or contact your state representative.
