Existing ACDA members like you are our best allies in member recruitment. When we add members, we all benefit - ACDA, new members, and the choral profession. For a limited time (until November 18, 2015), when you refer a colleague or student to ACDA and they join us, ACDA will thank both of you. We are offering $5 NEW student memberships this year as well.

Each will receive our full-sized ACDA poster, a copy of our book Images of America: American Choral Directors Association, and we'll reach in our grab bag of archival goodies and send each of you two CDs - all while supplies last. Visit or contact Sundra Flansburg at to learn more and order your Refer a Friend Kit.

ACDA Advocacy Resolution

Whereas the human spirit is elevated to a broader understanding of itself through study and performance in the aesthetic arts; and.

Whereas serious cutbacks in funding and support have steadily eroded arts institutions and their programs throughout our country,

Be it resolved that all citizens of the United States actively voice their affirmative and collective support for necessary funding at the local, state, and national levels of education and government, to ensure survival of arts programs for this and future generations.
