ACD Resources

The NZCF provides membership to The NZCF Association of Choral Directors (ACD). See some of our resources listed below.

ACD Network

Join ACD and you will become part of a network that provides professional development and mentoring, and fosters connectivity and collegiality between choral leaders. The ACD's activities are overseen by a committee of the NZCF, chaired by NZCF Board member David Squire.

Every two years, the ACD runs Choral Connect, a national convention for choral leaders from around New Zealand, including workshops, presentations, masterclasses, concerts and opportunities to network.

Members of the ACD have their own closed Facebook group where they can discuss repertoire, accompanists, concerts, professional development, workshops and other events, and generally support one another.

ACD Benefits

  • invitations to choral conducting workshops, conventions and other events
  • preferential acceptance to NZCF and ACD workshops where numbers are limited
  • a reduction (greater than that of personal members) on the entry fee to NZCF events
  • the opportunity to form networks with other conductors for encouragement and the sharing of information and resources
  • monthly eBreve and ACD’s Ictus newsletter
  • reductions on ticket prices to selected concerts
  • discounts on NZCF publications
  • voting rights at NZCF elections and other meetings

If you are interested in joining the Association of Choral Directors, please apply via our Membership page.
