The Council of State Executives provides state executives in the 52 NAfME federated associations with the opportunity to exchange ideas, review programs, learn about issues associated with legal and regulatory requirements for nonprofits, and coordinate activities with each other and NAfME.  The Council helps identify association best practices while representing the interests of music, music educators, and our family of associations.
