All-State Chaperones

PMEA District 11 Members, IT IS NEVER TO EARLY TO START THINKING ABOUT NEXT YEAR!!

2018 PMEA Annual Conference,  in Lancaster, PA.

Each year District 11 is responsible for providing chaperones for the All-State Ensembles. Since our district is so large, and we have a high percentage of students in the All-State Ensembles, we are responsible for providing 3 chaperones for the All-State Festival. If we do not provide 3 chaperones  District 11 is charged a substantial fee by PMEA for each chaperone we do not provide.

There are some perks to volunteering as a chaperone: your registration, several meals, and lodging for the conference are covered by PMEA. Attached you will find a full list of chaperone responsibilities and other information that will hopefully answer any questions that you may have.

Please consider volunteering! If you are interested in chaperoning this year’s All-State Festival, please contact me ASAP.
