Abstract: Recently, the National Association for Music Education (NAfME) National Executive Board (NEB) announced that beginning with the 2020 NAfME National Conference, the meetings of P–12 music education practitioners and members of the higher education community will be reunited. Prior to 2008, NAfME had traditionally provided biennial opportunities for these two different but interdependent groups to interact in a common professional development setting. The NEB decided in 2008 to change to a yearly conference model each summer in Washington, D.C.; however, this new model did not align well with the needs of the higher education community. Consequently, the NEB agreed to hold a separate biennial conference for the higher education community, which has come to be known as the NAfME Research and Teacher Education Conference.
