NAfME Chapter Recognized as Collegiate Chapter of Excellence
Congratulations to the University of Illinois Collegiate NAfME Chapter for receiving the 2020 NAfME Collegiate Chapter of Excellence Recognition in the recruitment techniques category!
This year’s executive board included: Brendon Culloton, President; Natalie Briggs, Vice President; Kevin Acuña, Secretary; Lydia Latham, Treasurer; Katie Mitchell, Publicist; and Maggie Ward, Publicist. Under their leadership, the chapter has grown from 15 to 60 students, or about 43% of the undergraduate music education student body.
The appeal of this group is due to the executive board’s creativity and organizational efforts, and the dedicated members who regularly participate in social and professional development events such as: 1) a welcoming scavenger hunt for first-year music education students; 2) frequent student-led and guest speaker/presenter events; and 3) an end-of-year picnic. Because of their strong leadership, the group will continue to grow given their creative ideas for hosting events and recruiting new members.
The board will be recognized during the virtual NAfME Reimaged National Leadership Assembly on June 25, 2020.
Congrats, U of I NAfME Collegiate!
