NAfME Collegiate members may attend all national, division, and state conferences upon registration, which is usually offered to collegiate members at a significantly discounted rate.

The NAfME National In-Service Conference  offers a four-day schedule of events that includes workshops, performances, lectures, industry exhibits, an employment referral center, and more. NAfME’s divisions hold conferences every other year in various locations determined by the division and the NAfME National Executive Board. State music educators association conferences are held independently of NAfME and usually occur annually. A listing of dates and locations of future conferences is available from NAfME.

By attending in-service conferences, Collegiate members have a place where they may associate with members of the profession and Collegiate members from other schools. The conferences provide a variety of activities for Collegiate members including clinical and formal sessions, special interest workshops, musical performances, and informal receptions. In addition, conferences host exhibits to display an assortment of the latest music materials and equipment available to music teachers that are perhaps not readily available or even familiar to the students.

Advocacy Events and Resources

NAfME invites all Collegiate members to attend the annual Collegiate Advocacy Summit and Hill Day in Washington, D.C.  This 3 day event includes an orientation to advocacy, legislative visits on Capitol Hill alongside NAfME state and national leaders, and intensive leadership training, plus numerous networking opportunities with student advocates and NAfME leaders.  Participants will take back valuable information and experience to share with their chapters and use in their careers for years to come.

NAfME also provides members with advocacy resources and training online; the Broader Minded initiative; and through collaborative efforts with other organizations who make up the Music Education Policy Roundtable.
