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.
