Why Membership? Where does my money go?

Being a member of NDMEA and under the umbrella of NAfME allows each member access to hours of professional development through NAfME Academy. Members of NDMEA/NAfME pay $20, non-members pay $100. UND is offering 1 credit for every 15 hours of NAfME Academy, up to 45 hours which would be 3 credits. You can find out more about this opportunity here.

Members get discounted rates for our annual conference, as well as a paid subscription to our state music education journal. Also, members who have high school students auditioning for All-State will pay less in fees than those who are non-members.
