NCMEA Declaration of Intent

Declaration of Intent for NCMEA*
(1971)

There is a need for assuring identification and representation to every music educator and
to every child in the state of North Carolina. The North Carolina Music Educators Association
declares itself in support of establishing confidence and integrity among those who learn and
those who teach in public school music. The Board of Directors of NCMEA pledges itself to
uphold the rights and interest of every member of the organization. It is from this concept that we
submit the following:

  • That provisions should be made for a racial balance on the Board of Directors of
    NCMEA and those of the Sections and the Districts.
  • That all activities under the auspices of NCMEA provide for representation and
    identification reflective of the racial makeup of NCMEA.
  • The Board of Directors of NCMEA reaffirms its intent individually and jointly to
    encourage and to influence present and future officers and members to subscribe to this
    declaration.

*The Declaration of Intent was written at the time of the merger of the Black and White state music education
organizations (The North Carolina State Music Teachers Association or NCSMTA and The North Carolina
Music Educators Conference or NCMEC) in 1971. Instead of indicating Black and White representation (as in
the original table accompanying this document), the table has been revised to reflect an intent to provide
balance on the board with respect to any racial minority or majority comprising the membership of NCMEA.
