WVMEA would like to take this opportunity to send out a heartfelt Thank You to the CMA Foundation, VH1 Save The Music Foundation, and West Virginia Department of Arts, Culture and History for your help and support during the 2019 Hill Day at the Capitol!

On Wednesday, March 6th, members of the WVMEA executive board were joined by CMA Foundation and VH1 Save the Music to advocate for music education at our state capitol in Charleston. Recording artist and Martinsburg WV native Christian Lopez was our special guest. After a great day of advocating for music education in the mountain state, we closed our Hill Day with a celebration in the WV Cultural Center's Grand Hall. Guests were treated to a performance by Christian Lopez and enjoyed time with colleagues and friends. The WV Department of Arts, Culture and History partnered with WVMEA to make this event possible.

And, we're pretty excited about it. WVMEA has been recently undergoing a website re-development. Thank you for being patient as we reformat content, add new features, and improve the overall website structure. The ability to download the usual forms and view links for registrations and additional sources of information will still be available, but we hope you have an easier time locating the information you're looking for and can take advantage of some new features. We'll be adding pages with current news, a search bar to scan articles, an events calendar, job postings, a contact page, and more. Our goal is that this project will be a great resource to music educators, students and their parents once it's completed! Please bear with us as we continue to better your online experience.
