2020 Conference Accommodations


Your health and well being is a primary concern, here is what our partners at the Gaylord Palms are doing to ensure your safety at the 2020 NAfME National Conference.

NAfME recognizes that COVID-19 is a topic of great concern for our members. We have created a resource and news page with World Health Organization (WHO) and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidance as well as information related to music instrument hygiene.

The page will be updated as we receive new information pertinent to our members’ needs.
