CSMTA to Partially Fund NCTM Teacher Certification Fee

Update: The Southern Colorado Music Teachers Association was the local association with the highest percentage of members present at the 2015 CSMTA Conference.  As a result, CSMTA will fund one-half of the MTNA Teacher Certification fee for one member of SCMTA.  Congratulations to Southern Colorado MTA!
