New Member Program

 

In an effort to encourage membership in PMEA, District 5 is covering the cost of annual dues for selected music educators who are in their first 3 years of being a PMEA member. We recognize that membership dues can be cost-prohibitive to some music teachers, and many times, new teachers begin their careers in less-resourced schools who do not cover the cost of membership.

 

Award Amount: Cost of Annual PMEA Membership Dues
