A student chapter of the American Choral Directors Association (ACDA) exists for the support and encouragement of music students planning to pursue a career as a choral director. ACDA is particularly beneficial to future (and present) music educators, church musicians, and conductors/participants in all types of vocal ensembles. Annual membership dues include a subscription to The Choral Journal and all privileges of participation in ACDA sanctioned events at the local, state, regional, and national levels.
- Students receive a state and national journal (Music Educators Journal and Teaching Music) through membership dues.
- Students have opportunities to attend state and national in- service conferences.
- Students have access to professional teaching materials from NAfME.
- Students have opportunities to perform in Honor Ensembles sponsored by NAfME.
Students of NATS members have access to one of the organization's most widely recognized activities: Student Auditions. They also have the opportunity, along with members, to compete at a national level through the National Association of Teachers of Singing Artist Awards (NATSAA). A student chapter of NATS (SNATS) was established at North Greenville University in the Fall of 2008 and enjoys the enthusiastic support of many students in the Voice Department.

Pi Kappa Lambda chapters are privileged to recognize and elect to membership students and graduates of the institution who have distinguished themselves among their peers both academically and as performing musicians. These students will continue to enjoy the benefits of having been recognized for such an honor long after graduation.
