Welcome to the NAfME membership site for joining and renewing!
If you are a current or retired music educator, or a college student studying to become a music educator, use the links below to join or renew membership.
Active and retired members in the USA: you must choose at least one state membership along with your national NAfME membership. Your primary state membership should be in the state where you teach, not necessarily where you reside.
Collegiate members may choose only one state – the state where you attend school.
If you are a recent college graduate in your first year of teaching, or if you are the spouse of a current or retired NAfME member, contact us (800-336-3768 or firstname.lastname@example.org) to find out if you qualify for reduced membership rates.
