CMEA Bay Section News: 


A Message from the President:

We've been having issues with our iContact list that sends out all of our email communications. Our new, Recording Secretary, Marita Speiller, who took over for Ulices Chavez, has been working tirelessly (and teaching M.S. full-time), to correct these issues. We believe that one of the issues may be that you need to add "" to your contacts for your school and personal emails. Also, if you have changed positions and that has changed the email you use for CMEA, can you contact her at the same address so she can update the email list. The nomination links for Conference ensembles are posted below. 

Thanks and enjoy a beautiful weekend,
