In 2008, he assumed a position as National President Elect of the American Choral Directors’ Association. Scheibe previously served the ACDA as the Western Division President (1991-1993), as well as National R&S Chairperson for Community Colleges until 1989. He has brought ensembles to six national ACDA conventions.
