Overview
The annual WVMEA In-Service Conference is held in the spring of each year. It encompasses every segment of the organization and has emerged as a major in-service activity for all teachers, as well as providing unique performance opportunities for gifted students. In addition to workshop sessions on all levels of music instruction from kindergarten through college, several inspiring concert hours are held to spotlight the top honors performing organizations in the state, including honors finalists from the regional solo and ensemble festivals.

The gala finale of the In-Service Conference traditionally has been the performances of the All-State Band, Orchestra, and Chorus, usually under the direction of nationally known conductors. The In-Service Conference is supported by exhibitors who have displays and by the registration fee paid by members who attend. WVMEA members also have the opportunity to participate in the national and divisional NAfME in-service conferences, which are held during alternate years These meetings offer a wealth of possibilities for improved training and provide additional educational opportunities to all who attend.
