BRANCH PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE from Nicole Burns

Our June meeting is coming soon! Our hard-working board has put together a plan for the coming year. During the June Meeting, we will continue working on the dates and programs for upcoming 2021-2022 year. Please join us via ZOOM, as we truly value your input and suggestions. If you cannot attend the meeting, please feel free to email me with ideas and suggestions.

Please remember to pay your membership dues and report any new address, phone number, or email address to the state office so that the new directory can be updated. 

If you have any personal-recital or MTAC programs from 2020-2021 year, please email them to Hiromi. We need to send them to the State Office per our ongoing every-member agreement with ASCAP.

The CM Certificates and Medallions have finally been mailed to me from the State Office. I will send an email to all CM teachers, once I receive them and have them ready for pick-up.

I wish you all a happy, safe, and fun summer.
