ASCAPAC Potential & Campaigns

For the past three years, ASCAPAC has challenged its members to promote awareness of ASCAPAC within their states. The competition begins at the start of the calendar year and runs until ASCA’s annual meeting. The state with the highest percentage of participation and the state with the most money raised are recognized at the annual meeting.

The 2018 ASCAPAC “If Not Now, When?” state competition kicked off on January 1. Leaders have volunteered to help organize efforts in their states. Please see the list of volunteer state leaders below. If your state does not have a leader and you would like to assist, please contact Danielle Kaster at dkaster@ascassociation.org.
