Welcome new members

Whether you are a conductor, administrator, student, or fan - or even retired - we have a membership option that will work for you. A brief description of each member category is provided below. Please be aware that different categories have different benefits - click here to review benefits for each category.

For Individuals

Active ($95) - Active members are the vast majority of our members. To be an active member, you should be engaged as a part-time or full-time choral director, or responsible for the administration of a choral program. (Active members in Minnesota should add $15 for state chapter dues; members in Iowa should add $3 for state dues.)

Retired ($45) - If you are a member who has attained retirement status, we encourage you to maintain your membership in ACDA in this category. Dues are reduced, while you retain the same membership benefits as an active member. (Retired members in Minnesota should add $15 for state chapter dues.)

Student ($35) - If you are a high school or college student, you may join ACDA as a student at a reduced price. You may also use this category upon leaving school until you are able to secure a paid position, either part-time or full-time. We trust our members to act in accordance with the spirit of this gesture, understanding that it is a temporary way for individuals to be a part of the ACDA community until they begin to earn income that will allow them to be a full member. Student members receive an online Choral Journal.

Associate ($45) - If you are not currently an active choral conductor but you are interested in choral music and directing, this is your category for membership. Please be aware that this category is basically an online membership. Associate members receive an online Choral Journal, and are not eligible to sponsor students for Honor Choirs or attend conferences. (Associate members in Minnesota should add $15 for state chapter dues.)

International ($45) - Members and potential members living outside the United States and Canada should use the international member category. Please note that the reduced price reflects the fact that the Choral Journal will only be available to international members in its online form. If you are an individual living outside the U.S. or Canada and wish to purchase a print version of the journal, please contact our membership coordinator, Leane DeFrancis.
