AU MENC Collegiate Chapter (CMENC)
AU CMENC Music Students at SCMEA State In-Service Conference, North Charleston SC
The AU Music Educators National Conference Collegiate Chapter (CMENC) is an active pre-professional student organization that promotes professional development, community service, and networking of collegiate students, university faculty, and public school teachers. With participation by most of the music education majors at AU, the AU CMENC received recognition for outstanding growth in 2006-2007 by the MENC national office. AU CMENC students organize professional development workshops, participate in fundraising events for community projects, attend the annual SCMEA State In-Service Conference, and offer mutual support in preparing for teaching careers. By working together on these and other projects, students become familiar with the larger community of music educators--along with enjoying some fellowship and food along the way!
