The 2022 MMEA All State Conference will not be in the usual 3-day in-person format that we had for so many years before the pandemic. The Conference format will be whatever works best as the restrictions ease – maybe that will be a combination of virtual workshops throughout the year and a one-day in-person event at a college or conference site, or maybe it will be some other option that will arise when life gets back to somewhat normal.
Regardless of the format, the 2022 MMEA Conference Committee is committed to providing meaningful PD for music educators and will continue to work on a plan that meets the expectations and needs of our members.
Whether the sessions next year be virtual or in-person, we are now seeking proposals for workshops. Proposals can be made here. What we don’t know for sure is: when and where, virtual or in-person, length of sessions, etc. What we do know is: clinicians need to indicate whether or not their session could be virtual, so that the committee members are aware of that when choosing sessions.
It would be utterly fantastic to have a magic wand to predict exactly what this is going to look like, but that’s not the case! So we have wait a tad to see what is safe, comfortable, and affordable. It is important for you to check the website and MMEA eblasts for updates.
