The Connecticut Music Educators Association (CMEA) is a federated state organization for the National Association for Music Education (NAfME) and is the largest arts education association in the state of Connecticut. CMEA plays an important role through its encouragement and support of the highest musical standards in our school programs. The All-State, Regional and Elementary Honors Festivals, the Annual In-Service Conference and other professional development opportunities, the CMEA NEWS magazine, advocacy efforts and grant programs for our members are some of the ways that the Connecticut Music Educators Association continues to fulfill its commitment of more than three quarters of a century to music education in our state.
