RENEW MEMBERSHIPEstablished in 1977, the Association for Community Design (ACD) is a network of individuals, organizations, and institutions committed to increasing the capacity of planning and design professions to better serve communities. Membership is open to both organizations and individuals. The modest dues collected by the ACD support an annual conference, program development, and the maintenance of this website.
Sustaining MembershipAllows individuals and organizations to provide continued support to ACD via an automatic monthly contribution without any annual term. The dues contribution is deducted from the Member’s account each month, until the Member specifically requests to cancel their membership. Sustaining Membership eliminates the need for renewal reminders or tracking member terms; it also allows Members to provide their contribution in installments over time, reducing the one-time burden on Member budgets.
Sustaining Membership represents an ongoing commitment to financial support for ACD and our renewed initiative to engage emerging professionals in the field.
Offers an option for individuals and organizations that prefer a single contribution each year. Annual Memberships do not renew automatically; Annual Members are provided with a renewal reminder as the end of their membership term draws near. A discounted Annual Member rate will be available for students who provide proof of enrollment in a degree program at an accredited institution of higher education, in order to promote the involvement of young professionals in ACD.
For all members who were previously part of ACD, we have transferred all of the log-in information from our previous membership management database to our new home on the web. Here's the few simple steps toward accessing your account and choosing from our many membership options.
1. As you renew your membership, you will need two pieces of information: your username and password. If you no longer have that information or the person handling the account is not longer with the organization, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with an information request and we can reset them so you may gain access to your information.
2. Once you have your information, you can sign into the ACD website to manage your account by logging in with your username and password in the top right corner of the site (see above highlighted). Once logged in, you can both modify your membership level or simply renew at your same level of membership (see below).
3. When your membership has been completed, take a couple of minutes to update your profile with new contact and organizational information to let us know how we and the rest of our fellow Association members can connect with you.
