"Sing Up" award presented in Seattle

murphy-accepts-award

singupIdaho tops 'em all. The membership drive initiative called "Sing Up" with which we partnered with our National ACDA office result in a 30% growth in Idaho ACDA. Our target was a 15% growth. We doubled that! Thanks to our existing Idaho ACDA members, our best allies in member recruitment. By adding members, we all benefit – Idaho, National ACDA, new members, and the choral profession. See what we accomplished HERE...>

Part of the membership initiative continues. For a limited time (until January 1, 2014), when you refer a colleague or student to ACDA and they join us, ACDA will thank both of you. 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 person two CDs - all while supplies last.

We did indeed "catch the vision! Tim Sharp, our national Executive Secretary, says, "Idaho showed exemplary leadership during ACDA's first-ever membership drive, and I congratulate the state on the fact that it topped every one of our lists on membership growth."
