Collegiate Chapters Rick Dammers, state collegiate advisor


The New Jersey Collegiate Chapters of NAfME have elected a new executive board for the 2013-2014 school year. The board members


are: Andrew Cox, Westminster Choir College, President; Mary Onopchenko, Rowan University, Vice President; Leslie Marquez-Salmeron, Rowan University, Secretary; Ashlie Morro, Rowan University, Treasurer; Brian Chesney, The College of New Jersey, Media Coordinator. Under their leadership, the collegiate chapters will have a meeting at the NJEA Conference in Atlantic City in November and a Collegiate


Academy in conjunction with the NJMEA conference in February in East Brunswick. The board will also be working on exciting service projects and events designed to support and connect the individual NAfME chapters.


The role of the Corporate/Industry liaison for the NJMEA Board of Directors is to serve as the bridge between music educators and the


business sector. If you have an idea for a project that includes help from the business community feel free to contact me, as I may be able to offer assistance or advice. For example, you may be interested in adding a guitar class at your school. But you may not know that GAMA (Guitar & Accessories Manufacturing Association) has many free resources available to educators and even provides training workshops for non-guitar players who want to teach classroom guitar. It’s important to be realistic when looking for financial support. Since the recession, many businesses have drastically trimmed their budgets for charitable contributions. But every business has a marketing budget with funds devoted to promoting their business. The key to a successful business partnership is finding the win/win opportunity in which the business is eager to invest.
