Call For Conference Proposals 2020

We invite submissions of conference proposals for consideration to be presented during the North Carolina Music Educators Association Professional Development Conference in Winston-Salem, NC November 7-10, 2020.

Our 1,500 plus attendees cultivate music education in the fields of general music, band, chorus, jazz, orchestra, and music technology. Conference participants come from all educational levels and include K-12 students and teachers, pre-service collegiates and university/higher education faculty.

Deadline for submission is February 15, 2020.

The 2020 NCMEA Conference will be the 50th Anniversary of the Association. As such, we invite proposals that will not only celebrate our history but will also cultivate a vision of music education beyond this anniversary year. When considering ideas for sessions at conference, please keep in mind the ideals set forth by our current strategic plan. Proposals should:

  • Reflect diversity in our profession and represent the wide and changing spectrum of our population. This representation may include various cultures, abilities, economic backgrounds and gender identities;
  • Develop leadership to advocate for music education in the classroom, in school programs, and in the community and should represent current trends in education policy at the local, state and federal level;
  • Provide opportunities for all students to create, perform, respond, and connect to various styles of music;
  • Enhance music teaching through combining effective and dynamic new practices with proven strategies.

NCMEA Section Chairs will review and invite speakers/clinicians to present at Conference. All submissions will be notified about the status of their proposal in early April.
