Called to Be a Living Voice
In order to more fully serve its members and better provide the kind of support, networking, inspiration and learning that our members can use, the ALCM Board of Directors surveyed the membership in 2014 to get a clearer idea of who we are and what we do. As a result of the survey a Statement Committee was formed to look at our 2003 Statement on Music and Worship and to decide whether to keep it, revise it, or write a new one. The committee decided to keep the 2003 Statement and to add to it by producing a draft of a new document, Called to Be a Living Voice, which was presented to ALCM members in July 2015. Members were invited to provide feedback that was subsequently incorporated into a revised document. The revised document was posted on the website and was also presented at each of the regional conferences this summer. View the revised statement.
We now ask you to place your vote in deciding whether or not to adopt the document as a reflection of who we are as ALCM members in 2016. Voting ends at midnight on September 30th.
