EMERGING LEADERS FORUM
This forum seeks to unite individuals interested in taking the step to serve as a leader within NAfME and its affiliate music education association structure. Young professionals, teachers returning to the field, and established teachers will all walk away feeling empowered to join the ranks of those who came before and those currently working to ensure a bright future in music education.
MUSIC PROGRAM LEADERS FORUM
This forum will provide relevant professional development for music program leaders and district arts coordinators working in the K-12 school setting, aimed at establishing and growing networks of collegial support for those in the profession. This forum is geared for those in administrative roles, built with insights and models from your colleagues – music program leaders.
