Welcome to the Retired Members Page
Retirees: If you are a retired member, and are willing to stay involved in PMEA and share your expertise, please fill out the questions on your PMEA User Profile at your earliest convenience.
You can view this PDF document for detailed instructions on how to update your profile.
Non-retirees: If you are an active PMEA member, officer, council representative, festival host, or workshop planner, retired members stand ready to help. Search the R3 to find highly motivated and very experienced (but FREE) consultants/advisers for your next PMEA or music education program/project.

Mock Interview Volunteers
Besides the names listed above in the Retired Resource Registry, several other PMEA members have indicated they are interested and available to serve as “virtual employment screeners” for interview practice workshops of music education majors. Higher Education members or PCMEA chapter advisors should contact these people directly for their help in mock “question and answer” sessions to help prepare collegiates for marketing themselves during the coming job search process. (Please email Paul Fox if you would like your name and email added to this list.)
