Lawrence’s chapter of the Collegiate Music Educators National Conference (CMENC) is ready for a new year of promoting and supporting music education, and we are eagerly looking forward to your help in making this the best CMENC ever. As a CMENC member, you will have the opportunity to come into contact with leaders and peers in the music education profession through participation in programs, demonstrations, discussions, workshops, and performances, and enrich the surrounding community through outreach projects. As a CMENC member, you will have the opportunity to attend the Music Education National Convention in Madison this fall, with valuable sessions given by teachers from across the nation to help you stay current on the developments of music education. We also host Lawrence’s annual Music Education Retreat at Bjorklunden. In addition, CMENC members are given chances to work in local schools through our “Music in the Schools” program. Anyone and everyone is invited to join us in advocating and shaping the future of music education. Our first meeting will be Monday, Sept. 29 at 9:19 p.m. in room 156. We look forward to meeting you!
