Important Login Instructions

How to log in right now and the login procedure change that will occur sometime during the 2020-21 school year.

Members were recently notified by email regarding their login in username and password for this site through our main constant contact database and also through the CTFest festival email system to those who have participated in festivals. If you do not participate in MS/HS student festivals, and therefore have not set up a profile on CTFest, you should have only received one notice.

If you did not receive our email, it may be because your membership has long lapsed or the email that is currently on your NAfME membership profile page is no longer used by you or does not exist. In either case, you should login to and make sure that the primary email posted for you is current and renew your membership if needed.


Here are some items that are visible only when logged in:
  • Contact emails for the Executive Board, Student Affairs Commission, festival committees, HS repertoire committee and other program chairs.
  • Teacher Festival Guidelines and Policies Handbook. There is an abbreviated student version of festival policies posted publicly that only contains what students need to know. Please utilize the Teacher Handbook for your own reference. It has more detail.
  • CTFest Training Videos and how to access guides. CTFest link.
  • CMEA NEWS magazine: Archive of past issues
  • Access to some forms/applications that are meant to be for members only.
  • Committee forms needed by festival and ensemble chair people and other program leaders.
  • Association documents: Constitution and By-Laws, Articles of incorporation

LOGIN right now

Use the Username and Password you received via email. ALL members will be using the same username/password for now.

Didn’t get the login instructions email?  Ask a colleague who did receive it or send an email to Barbara at and she will send the login to you. Please write “LOGIN” in the subject line.

LOGIN to come

In the spring, the login system will be changed over to individual usernames and passwords. You will be notified several times regarding this change prior to going into effect.

At this time, we hope to be able to sync CMEA’s login system with NAfME’s so that members could use the same login for both sites.  As you know, NAfME recently changed their login system again (if you have not gone to to reset your password and check your profile, please do so soon.) CMEA chose to delay trying to coordinate ours with theirs until we are certain that their new system is running smoothly. If for some reason it is not possible to sync, CMEA will still transition to an individualized member login through a different platform.
