NAfME Welcomes Illinois Music Educators and Students

The affiliated organization relationship between the National Association for Music Education (NAfME) and the Illinois Music Education Association (ILMEA) ended on July 1, 2021, but NAfME continues to believe that NAfME and Illinois music educators are stronger together! In response to the many Illinois educators who have asked how they can continue to be members of NAfME, we offer a special national-only membership for active, retired, and collegiate members who live, work, or attend college in Illinois. This special membership will allow Illinois educators and students to access the NAfME community Amplify and the six NAfME journals, the new NAfME Learning Center, present at NAfME conferences, advise or join a NAfME Collegiate chapter, and many other benefits. 

NAfME remains fully committed to ensuring national representation of Illinois music educators. To start a new “NAfME-Illinois” membership, contact NAfME Member Services at or 800-336-3768. We look forward to serving you and working together to advance music education nationwide.
