What is NAfME Collegiate?
NAfME: The National Association for Music Education (formerly known as MENC) is among the world's largest arts education organizations. It marked its centennial in 2007 as the only association that addresses all aspects of music education. Through membership of more than 75,000 active, retired, and pre-service music teachers, and with 60,000 honor students and supporters, NAfME serves millions of students nationwide through activities at all teaching levels, from preschool to graduate school.
Concordia's chapter of NAfME Collegiate primarily serves music education majors who are specializing in the band setting. In cooperation with Concordia's students chapters of the American String Teachers Association (ASTA) and the American Choral Directors Association (ACDA), NAfME Collegiate strives to create experiences for students studying music education to become professionally engaged, and ultimately better prepared to enter the teaching profession upon graduation. There are no chapter membership dues, and all activities of the organization are open to any student regardless of area of emphasis.
