2020 NASMD Convention Canceled

Based on the latest guidance from the CDC and local officials, your NASMD Board of Directors feels it is in the best interests of our attendees to cancel our 2020 Convention and the March 25th Day of Service. The health and safety of our membership is of the highest importance and we feel, based on the rapidly evolving situation, that this is the responsible course of action.

We were really looking forward to another phenomenal convention. The board had put together an exceptional program and the support from our sponsors has been outstanding, as always.

The NASMD office will send an email out within the next few days with more information on cancelling hotel rooms and registration. Please do not contact the Vinoy Renaissance Hotel at this time. If you made reservations through the hotel block, they will be cancelled for you. If you booked at another hotel, please take care of that reservation. You are responsible for changing your own flight reservations as well.

We apologize for the inconvenience and disappointment this has caused, and thank you for your support and understanding. The show will go on next year and we will set our sights on Puerto Rico in 2021!

Welcome to the National Association of School Music Dealers! Our Association represents retailers, manufacturers, and service providers who share a passion for helping school music students make music.

Our 2019 convention at the JW Marriott Desert Springs Resort and Spa in Palm Desert was wonderful, from the venue to the program! The Board works hard to provide social events and educational sessions that benefit all member attendees. This year we covered a full range of topics addressing Personal Growth, Leadership, Sales Training, the Latest Trends in Social Media and Technology, plus we even had a community building Drum Circle. I hope you were able to join us. If not, please mark your calendar for March 25-28, 2020, and we'll see you at the Renaissance Vinoy Resort and Golf Club in beautiful St. Petersburg, Florida.

As a retail member for the last 50 years, I know NASMD has been instrumental (pun intended!) in Ted Brown Music's success and growth. The networking and camaraderie among the members are invaluable. The educational sessions have expanded to include topics relevant to Owners, Store Managers, Educational Representatives and Sales People alike. If you have an employee whom you'd like to see grow in knowledge and commitment to your business and the industry, NASMD is the place to do it!

If you aren't yet a member of NASMD and are passionate about serving school music students, teachers, & parents, I invite you to join NASMD today.
