If traditional chorus membership isn’t the best option for you, Sweet Adelines offers two alternatives – Chapter-at-Large (CAL) and Member-at-Large (MAL).
Chapter-at-Large membership is intended to provide Sweet Adelines International membership with affiliation to a region/area for nonmembers or members in good standing who are not able to or choose not to participate in a local chorus. A Chapter-at-Large member holds all privileges of traditional chorus membership except performing or competing with a chorus in the competition of the region/area in which she is affiliated; and forming or performing as a Chapter-at-Large chorus or unregistered quartet representing itself as a quartet of Sweet Adelines International.
A Chapter-at-Large member may affiliate with a chorus in another region and is eligible to compete with that chorus in regional or international competition.
Chapter-at-Large members are responsible for payment of regional dues for the region in which they are a member.
Member-at-Large membership is intended to provide Sweet Adelines International membership without affiliation to a region/area for nonmembers or members in good standing. Members-at-large are not eligible to participate in regional or international competitions.
The international dues are the same for both membership categories.
