MMEA Executive Office
The MMEA Executive Office operates virtually with an Executive Director and part-time assistance. We work closely with over 150 highly skilled volunteer leaders who are full-time music teachers serving on one of the 5 component association boards (MBDA, MCEA, MGMTA, MODA, MSMTE); serving on a committee or workgroup; or serving in a volunteer manager/coordinator role. The MMEA Executive Office works in collaboration with the MMEA Board and component association boards, teachers, parents, sponsors, arts organizations, community organizations, and contractors throughout Maryland. We ensure the operational infrastructure, financial forecasting, public relations, meeting and event logistics, plus resource development aspects of the association are maintained. The contact information is listed below. We appreciate the ongoing support and partnership!
Mailing Address: PMB#472, 6710 F Ritchie Highway, Glen Burnie, MD 21061
General Operating Hours: 9:30 a.m. - 5:30 p.m. Revised during events, meeting, vacations, holidays, etc.
To preserve the privacy and safety of students, all communication is facilitated through the school music teacher. MMEA staff can assist with information that exists on the website and will direct you to the best contacts.
You can access the MMEA Executive Office via phone/voice-mail and email. We aim for a reply within two-four business days. This does not apply during meetings, high event season, travel, holidays, and vacations.
During high event season, responses will be slow or significantly delayed. In these cases, review the MMEA website for event updates. Several weeks prior to an event and several weeks after, the MMEA Executive Office staff team is preparing, coordinating and managing pre-event, onsite, and post-event logistics. Thus, the office is usually closed or has limited hours several days prior to and just after an event. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience this may cause. We are striving to do our best with the time and resources available.
MMEA acknowledges and is closed on Thanksgiving Day, Friday after Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year’s Day, Inauguration Day, Martin Luther King, Jr Birthday, Washington’s Birthday or Presidents Day, Easter, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Good Friday, Veteran’s Day, and Columbus Day. The MMEA Office will be closed between Christmas and New Year.

Grow the use of technology and go digital;
Realign the value of volunteer leaders;
Promote professional learning;
Maximize member engagement;
