Benefits of Membership

The Ohio Music Education Association is an affiliate of NAfME, The National Association for Music Education. In order to become a member of OMEA, you must join NAfME and declare Ohio as your state affiliate. 

By becoming a member of the Ohio Music Education Association and NAfME: The National Association for Music Education, you benefit through professional development opportunities, access to top-rated music education publications and exposure to cutting-edge concepts through electronic media. The result is the ability to offer quality educational opportunities to your students. 

OMEA/NAfME members have access to the OMEA publication, TRIAD, which is published three times each year and is provided to members through our website on their computers, tablets, and phones. You will also receive the NAfME journals, Music Educators Journal, and Teaching Music. Membership entitles you access to the members-only section of the website, discounted registration at our annual Professional Development Conference and all other OMEA sponsored workshops. Membership also provides opportunities for your students to participate in all OMEA sanctioned activities for individuals and ensembles. 

Processing for joining OMEA/NAfME or renewing an existing membership occurs using the NAfME website. Click the button below to begin the process.
