NCMEA Luncheon

2023 Fall Luncheon

Monday, November 6th, 11:15-12:45pm

Centenary United Methodist -- East Wing Facing 5th Street

Join us in celebrating 57 years of NC ACDA!

As music educators make their annual pilgrimage to Winston-Salem this November, we gather to break bread together during the NCMEA Conference. Since a large majority of NC ACDA members are also members of NCMEA, we host a luncheon to connect with one another and invite others to learn about our organization. Our state chapter of the American Choral Director’s Association is ready to serve you, as we are YOUR choral resource right here in NC.

The majority of NC ACDA’s leadership will be on hand at this event to greet our guests and get to know you better. A highlight of the luncheon – besides the opportunity to visit with each other and meet new people -- will be to witness the announcement of our next Lara Hoggard Award Recipient, and the third annual NC Choral Impact and Artistry Award.

Even if your conference schedule is tight, one can quickly walk the 1½ blocks from the Benton Convention Center to the church, and if the weather is bad we will offer FREE Shuttle Service to and from the Convention Center for 15 minutes prior and after the Luncheon. The newer East Wing meeting space is CLOSER to the Convention Center, and Steven’s Center is equidistant from the church and convention center to attend the choral concert immediately after the luncheon. Also, as a perk for non-members to attend, we are holding a drawing for some free memberships!

We hope you will plan to come -- and invite a friend or colleague to join you! Mrs. Pumpkins will once again cater food. You can order your lunch online (click Add to Cart below) ahead of time for $16 each; lunches are also sold “at the door” for $20 per person (as space and food are available). All payments are final and there are no refunds.

Online Registration is open through Wednesday, November 1st; however, we encourage you to join us and pay at the door in case you forget. Cash, check, or card will be accepted. We hope you will join us! --Anne Saxon & Suzanne Maggs, Luncheon Co-Chairs
