Anyone can join!

As a member of the American Composers Forum you are connected to your colleagues and the wider world of new music. You can access a large variety of information for professional composers and find ways to promote your music and your career. By joining ACF, you join a national network of people devoted to music as a living art.

With 1,000 members in the U.S. and abroad, you are part of a community that is continually breaking new ground in music and advocating for the professional composer.

ACF members will also receive automatic membership in the Performing Arts Alliance (PAA), a national arts advocacy network of more than 27,000 organizational and individual members comprising the professional, nonprofit performing arts and presenting fields. ACF members receive from PAA periodic email notifications of important arts-related legislation and other national advocacy activities.
