Membership Requirements

Dance Competitions and Conventions may join as Full Voting Members of the ADCC with voting rights. All members are at a single level, and each Member Competition/Convention receives one vote in elections. Annual membership runs January-December and provides benefits for that year. 

ADCC Members must meet two key requirements. They must have been in business at least five (5) years and must demonstrate an adherence to the ADCC Code of Ethics. Membership Dues support the ADCC’s programs and services.
