Join or Renew NAfME Membership

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.

Please read the following important notes before clicking forward.

For current members: In July, NAfME launched a new membership system. If you received an email from NAfME on July 25 prompting you to update your account password and you have done so, you can simply click “Renew” below, login, and quickly complete your renewal. If you have not updated your password yet, check your email (including spam folders) for our message and follow the prompt to complete the update. If you can’t find the message, email to have it resent to you. Clicking on the unique-to-you link in the message and updating your password will activate your account in our new system. You’ll then be able to quickly and easily renew your membership. Don’t create a new account as it will not have your current membership information in it.

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 to find out if you qualify for reduced membership rates.
