Student Membership Options
We have a special membership category for students, with a reduced rate, and work hard to provide ACDA students with a range of opportunities and benefits that are specific to their situations. In these challenging times, ensuring that you belong to your professional association as you continue your studies and emerge into the professional world can only help.
Student membership is for high school, college or university, and graduate school students who don't yet have a paying choral position. At $35 per year, this membership category gives you access to almost all of the benefits of regular active membership. In addition, we are currently developing several new benefits that will specifically help student members. So stay tuned!
- For a limited time, you can take advantage of a special that allows recently graduated students (within two years of graduating) to continue student membership, if they haven't yet obtained a paying choral position. Just renew (or join) as a student.

A Tip on Your Account Information
Please consider including a permanent or medium-term mailing address and a personal email address when you enter your information online (or on a printed membership form). Student members of ACDA represent the membership group we most lose contact with due to old addresses and emails. You'll move on from your student days, but we hope you don't move on from ACDA!
"One more advantage to being a part of the 'choral community' - networking! You'll meet other choral directors [at a conference] and learn that they have some similar and some different circumstances from your own to share. And who knows? When you're looking for that job, maybe the job you're interviewing for will be one that was held by someone you talked to at a convention."

|"Being a student, you might also find graduate school possibilities that you otherwise would have overlooked or not even know about if you were considering going on to get a graduate degree."|
