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, a part of the NAMM Music Education Advocacy D.C. Fly-In.
While on the Hill, NAMM member delegates delivered exciting news to House, Senate and Governors’ offices about school districts and schools that have received national recognition for their support of music education. This is the 3rd year delegates have met with their elected representatives to deliver the good news of Best Communities for Music Education (BCME).
BCME is a signature program of The NAMM Foundation that recognizes and celebrates outstanding music education programs in districts across the country. In 2019, 623 districts and 98 schools received designations.
Members of Congress happily accepted commemorative BCME flags from NAMM members and the moments were celebrated on social media.
