Frequently Asked Questions by Members
I received an email/postcard/phone call from a company asking for my personal information.They said they were working on a directory for the American Choral Directors Association. Is this a legitimate project, or is it a scam?
We have partnered with PCI (also known as Publishing Concepts) to produce our new member directory. PCI is a company located in Dallas, TX that publishes directories for educational institutions, fraternities, sororities and military organizations across the nation. This project allows the American Choral Directors Association to receive important updates to our database so we know more about our members and how we can better serve you and future members.
How do I know my information will only be used for directory purposes?
American Choral Directors Association has a contractual agreement with PCI that states:
The names, addresses and information provided to PCI by American Choral Directors Association for the publication of the Directory will be held confidential by PCI, except to the extent that they are utilized in, or in the preparation of, the directory and except as required by court order or law.
The directory will be made available only to members of American Choral Directors Association. Upon completion of the project, PCI will return to American Choral Directors Association any and all electronic files that have been supplied by American Choral Directors Association or produced by PCI in connection with the production of the directory.
