I was late getting my membership renewed and I have missed a few Choral Journals. How do I get the copies of the journals I have missed?
  1. If you do not know how many months of the journal you may have missed - sign in to your ACDA account and look at the month that your membership expired. ACDA chorals are sent out 1 month ahead of time so if you renewed your account in January then you will not receive the January Journal. Here is an example of how to calculate the number of journals you have missed:
    • If my last month at ACDA was on October 30th and I renewed my membership on January the 1st - I will need journals for November, December, and January. 
  2. Contact ACDA Receptionist out our national office, Olga Funderburk (405) 232-8161, and Olga will send you any missing copies that you need.
    • Each copy of individual Choral Journals costs $3.00 to purchase
How do I start a start a student chapter at my high school or University?
  1. Student chapters are the future generations of Choir Directors that make the world go around - here are the three key thing you need to start a student chapter:
    • A faculty sponsor - Must be an ACDA member
    • A chapter constitution 
    • A president of the group - Must be an ACDA member
  2. If you would like access to any of the forms or templates needed to start your own student chapter then try our student membership page!
How do I know if I qualify as a student member? OR How do I switch between a student membership and an active membership? 
  1. Often school is an active part of many of our members lives, and we want to be as supportive of members furthering their education as we can! But sometimes members switch from student members to active members back to student members - so how do you know if you qualify as a student member? Here are some recommendations for student membership:
    • Student members should be enrolled full time (typically 4 to 5 classes) in a given school year
    • Students should not be receiving part-time or full-time employment as a choral director while taking classes in order to qualify as a student member - If you are receiving part-time or full-time payment as a choral director we ask that you remain under active membership status
  2. In order to switch between active membership and student membership the national ACDA office has to make a manual change to your account. Please contact the Director of Membership and Communications, Sundra Flansburg (405) 232-8161; 200, who will help you change account status. To renew your account under the correct status, the manual change from the national office has to happen first.
