Message from the President
Dear CAPMT Members,
Happy New Year! We are proud to announce that CAPMT has been awarded the 2020 State Affiliate of the Year Award by Music Teachers National Association. This is a great honor and we are so excited to receive this award at the National Conference in Chicago March 21 - 25, 2020. We are so proud of our organization and pleased to receive recognition for our achievements. MTNA awards requisites such as strong leadership and community, membership growth and retention, new technology, innovative programs, state and national visibility. National applauds our reach to the younger demographic and strong membership growth through YPLN, our awareness of the changes in classical music and our move toward the future through progressive conference programming, our strong community and leadership achieved as we have worked to return to a full volunteer platform, our vision in creating a new website that is beautiful and user friendly and our ability to protect our members through liability insurance. These and many other accomplishments have moved us to the forefront of the nation as an example of a leading state affiliate. Thank you to our strong leadership and so many that give their time, energy and passion to our wonderful CAPMT.
We hope you will join us in Chicago to celebrate! https://www.mtna.org/Conference/Conference_Home/Conference/Home.aspx . We will have a special California gathering on Sunday evening. It is a wonderful time of friendship and re-connection. More details and location to follow.
