2017-18 Registration Instructions

 Please read these instructions carefully before clicking the links shown.

Your school membership for the current year will not be considered complete until and unless you complete the steps below. If you are already subscribed to the mailing lists you may skip that step. If your cell phone number has not changed since last year you may skip the text messaging step as well.


Clicking the word “HERE” at the end of each step will open a new tab that will display the proper page to complete that step.


Step 1 –  You must submit the online registration form – even if nothing has changed from last year. Schools that are not submitted will be deleted from the list of member schools after October 1st. Your junior/middle and senior high require completely separate registrations.

  • A. If your school was in the database last year it will be included in the list of schools that displays. If your school is not listed please contact info@arkcda.org for further instructions.

  • B. Please use capital letters appropriately. If you enter everything in lower or upper case that is the way it will appear in all printed materials (All State program, adjudication sheets, etc.)

  • C. Please enter your telephone number using this format; (999)-999-9999. Do not include extensions.

  • D. To submit the form please click the Save button only once.

  • E. Once your record is updated you will see the message <<<Record updated>>>. You may then close that tab and proceed to Step 2.

Step 3 – You must have an account in the Information Center. If you already have that you do not need to complete this step. If you do not have an account please contact info@arkcda.org. You cannot register directly in the Information Center..


Step 4 –  You must sign up for your region mailing list. If you are already subscribed and your email address hasn’t changed you do not need to re-subscribe. For instructions on how to subscribe click HERE


Step 5 –  You must send in the AAA Eligibility certificate along with a list of your eligible students. NOTE: You only need to include the names of those students who will be participating in any interscholastic choral event in the upcoming semester. Also, note that even though all seventh and first semester 8th grade students are automatically eligible their names still must be reported. DO NOT SEND LISTS THAT CONTAIN PERSONAL INFORMATION THAT MAY VIOLATE THE STUDENTS’ RIGHT TO PRIVACY (social security number, etc.).

Step 6 (OPTIONAL) – Sign up for the ArkCDA text messaging service by sending a text message to 81010 with the text @arkcda. NOTE: The username you enter must be identifiable as belonging to a member school director. Usernames which cannot be verified will not be approved.

This is 100% optional and will only be used in situations where time is of the essence in communication. ArkCDA is not responsible for any texting charges that may occur.
