Let Us Know What Your Chapter Is Doing
ACDA's Choral Journal regularly includes Student Chapter Updates. Email news updates and photos to Sundra Flansburg, Membership Development Director. Updates should be 250 words or fewer and include the name and email address for the person we should contact if there are questions on the information. Also include the name of your college or university, and the state in which you are located. Preference is given to submissions that are interesting, creative, and relevant to other student chapters and the wider ACDA membership.
