Membership Continues to Grow

Twenty-seven directors from 15 different schools have already joined NIMCon! Thank you for your commitment to this new professional conference. To those considering membership, take a moment to view the schools that have already joined. We hope you will add your name to the list, and be sure to spread the word to directors who may have missed our emails this spring. NIMCon is open to ALL music directors in the State of Illinois.

NIMCon Board of Directors

Congratulations to the following directors who were elected to the NIMCon Board of Directors on June 1st.

June 1st Meeting

We had 31 directors in attendance at our June 1st meeting. We are thrilled with the dialogue that has taken place, and are excited to begin our first contest season! Read the June 1st Meeting Minutes. At the meeting, members voted on Bylaws as well as Contest Rules & Procedures.

We are forming a committee to work on our rubrics this summer. These rubrics will serve as guidelines for directors and judges for solo and ensemble contest. Please contact Elise Matusek, Vice-President, at if you are interested in serving on this committee.

Contest Dates

We are planning to offer Organization Contest on March 11 and 12. As soon as we have a site confirmed, we will post it on the website. We hope this helps those of you who needed a March contest date. We are also continuing our research for a venue for a “second-level” contest to be held in April or the first weekend in May. If you have any ideas, including a name for this contest, please contact us!

Next Meeting

The Annual membership meeting will take place on Thursday, September 17th at 7:00 PM at Lake Zurich MS North. More information will be available in August.
