News

In addition to information posted on the ALCM web site, news about events, people, and activities is available through our online monthly e-newsletter, which is distributed to all ALCM members for whom we have email addresses.

Events

Every other year in odd-numbered years ALCM sponsors a national conference. In even-numbered years, conferences are held in each of ALCM’s four regions. These regional conferences may be larger events held over several days, or may take the form of a more informal one- or two-day workshop. Check the ALCM calendar for a complete list of all ALCM-sponsored events. The American Guild of Organists also maintains an online calendar of major events of various denominational and other musical organizations.
