NER Business Special Announcements




We are anticipating an exciting conference with the various concurrent sessions, annual Cabaret, and a plethora of CMTEs.

Master’s Level Entry (MLE) TOWN HALL

On Friday April 20, 2018, the NER Assembly Delegates and members of the former MLE committee will be hosting an unopposed Town Hall from 5:00-6:15pm. Please plan to attend. As a member of the NER-AMTA, the central question will be what additional considerations you would like the Board to consider before the Board makes a decision on the MLE Final Report?


The primary focus of the Town Hall is to provide NER music therapists the opportunity to engage with the Assembly delegates while the former MLE committee members encourage questions. Those questions will then be recorded (anonymously if desired) and submitted to AMTA Board of Directors for further consideration.


Please email all questions to Questions will be read and recorded by members of the NER-AMTA Assembly of Delegates. There will also be an opportunity to submit questions on-site at conference.


Take this time to thoroughly read through the lengthy MLE considerations posted on the AMTA website. They are available here:


As you read the MLE considerations, please think about what additional considerations you would like the AMTA Board of Directors to reflect on before a decision is made on the MLE Final Report.


Hope to see you all soon!

President, NER-AMTA
