Jazz in the Works

A new society is coming to MENC. The National Executive Board has announced plans to form a Society for Jazz Education to serve the unique professional needs of jazz educators.

“According to the MENC Constitution and Bylaws, the National Executive Board may establish ‘Societies’ to foster communication among and meet the needs of specific segments of MENC’s membership,” said Barbara Geer, MENC president-elect. “With the recent demise of the International Association for Jazz Education (IAJE), the time is right for an MENC Society for Jazz Education to serve our jazz educator members and promote the jazz education profession.”

More details about the Society for Jazz Education will be announced on the MENC Jazz Web site. For more information, read “MENC to Serve Jazz Educators through Formation of Society for Jazz Education.”
