MEIEA is governed and directed by an Executive Board comprising six (6) Executive Officers and a Board of Directors consisting of members drawn from professionals of the educational community and music and entertainment industries.
In order to facilitate the transition between governing boards, newly elected officers are expected to attend the board meetings prior to the spring conference as non-voting participants and following the spring conference as voting participants. Those meetings are usually held in late March on Wednesday evening, all day Thursday, and Thursday evening prior to the spring conference and on the Saturday evening following the conference.
All board members are expected to attend the annual fall board meetings. Those meetings are usually held in late October or early November and generally comprise two to three full days of activity.
