Message from Felicia Barber, MassACDA president
Dear Massachusetts ACDA Membership,
Our goal is to appeal to multiple facets of the membership (educators, collegiate, and lifelong) as well as explore many timely topics of equity and justice. Member benefits include not only our conferences, repertoire, mentoring, exclusive publications, & much more! ACDA national membership drive will run from September 15th – November 15th, 2020. This year, our chapter is thrilled to announce two specific membership initiatives.
The first, an Educator Membership Grant is a new initiative to encourage teachers who are not a part of ACDA to join. We are accepting applications to provide a limited amount of one-year paid memberships to ACDA, based on the following criteria:
• New Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) members
• Directors experiencing financial hardship due to COVID-19
• First-time joiners from around the state! Click here to apply for a free membership!
The second initiative is for our student members. National ACDA will be providing the annual Student Membership Rate of $5for any student currently enrolled in the middle, high school, or college! Click below to apply. https://acda.org/membership-
