Our Conference will generate the interest and attendance of over 700 high school students who participate in the All-State Band, Choir, Orchestra, or Jazz Band.  Over the past several years, our attendance numbers have been very consistent. The 2017 NMEA Conference saw a total of over 1,400 NMEA members registered – along with almost 300 NAfME college students and over 200 Tri-M students. The total registered attendance for 2017 included over 2,300 participants! NMEA remains proud that approximately 80% of Nebraska’s music educators are registered for our annual conference!

NMEA’s Conference/Clinic includes a wide variety of activities.  Among those are in-service workshops, clinic groups, concerts, meetings, and – of course – exhibits.  The exhibit venue provides NMEA members various resource information including materials, equipment, instruments, student travel, and fundraising ideas. NMEA Expo exhibits give our music educators the opportunity within the school year to view YOUR information.
