The annual ALCM Membership Directory features names, addresses, phone numbers, and e-mail addresses of ALCM members and is mailed to every current member of ALCM as well as those new members who join during the year. The directory lists both home and work information and also includes pages listing national officers, committee chairs, regional officers, publications editors, and denominational representatives. The front cover offers a prime opportunity for advertising: a full-color photo of a recent organ installation, architectural design of a Lutheran church, or liturgical art. Purchasers of front-cover ads also receive a full page b/w description on the inside the front cover. All front cover reservations are subject to approval. Advertisements are black and white and are distributed in the front section of the directory. The membership directory is published in January and contains approximately 60 pages. Deadline for submission of ads for the 2014 Membership Directory: December 1, 2013
