NAMM Music Education Advocacy D.C. Fly-In

Save the date: May 20- 23, 2019

Each spring, NAMM members gather in Washington, D.C. to serve as advocates for the right of every child to learn and grow with music by visiting with their elected representatives on Capitol Hill.

NAMM Fly-In participants receive intensive training with policy experts to learn about the policies and priorities of the current administration. With guidance from veteran delegates and seasoned professionals, NAMM members prepare research-based talking points for visits with their Members of Congress. These visits are not just a time to make demands of our legislature, however. It is also when we encourage Senators and Representatives to celebrate the school districts and schools that receive national recognition through The NAMM Foundation’s Best Community for Music Education or SupportMusic Merit Award within their states and congressional districts.

NAMM members will connect with other delegates from their states to form a working coalition to monitor progress and provide support to local school districts through distribution of established educational materials and providing access to effective advocacy templates.

NAMM members are welcome to bring guests (one max). NAMM guests are welcome to attend meals and events; see the schedule below.

It is a rewarding honor to be a part of the diverse group of NAMM members who come together with a common purpose, to ensure that our education system continues to provide the opportunity to learn music. In Washington, we are personally educating our country’s leaders on the power of music and helping to protect student’s rights to have music as part of their curriculum, today and into the future.
