REPORT OF THE PRESIDENT

President Pieffer delivered a "State of the Association" report, assessing MTNA's accomplishments during the past year. This included trips by the President and Executive Director to the Beijing Music Festival and the European Piano Teachers annual conference in Rome.

Retail Print Music Dealers Association/MTNA Presentation

President Pieffer presented a newly-developed member program, conceived in partnership with the Retail Print Music Dealers Association. The purpose of the program is to strengthen the relationship between independent music teachers and the local music dealers. She distributed the "Partnership Action Plan" that outlined outreach initiatives in marketing and advertising, public relations, and education for both teachers and dealers. The initiatives were devised by a joint task force consisting of:

Phyllis Pieffer, MTNA President, co-chair

Richard Rejino, Brook Mays Music Co., co-chair

Michelle Gordon

Martha Smith

Danny Rocks

Peggy Otwell

Liane Rockley

Gary Ingle

Kevin Hackinson

Lisa Shannon

President Pieffer challenged the MTNA local association network to embrace and implement the plan on both the local and independent levels. She was joined by Richard Rejino, Immediate Past President of RPMDA, and Danny Rocks of Alfred Publishing Company in the presentation of the partnership action plan.

BUSINESS

Bylaws Amendment

The MTNA Board of Directors recommended an amendment to the MTNA Bylaws.

The purpose of the amendment is to restructure the membership on the Board of Directors to develop more effective and efficient lines of communication with the states through the division structure. The titles "division presidents" and "division presidents-elect" will be replaced by the titles "director" on the Board of Directors and "director-elect" for each division.

The "director" will serve as a director on the Board of Directors and as director of the division. The "director-elect," elected by the division membership, will automatically assume the position of director on the Board of Directors and director of the division.

The current division presidents-elect may also run for the office of Division Director-elect for the 2006-2008 term if they so choose.

To provide for a smooth transition, it is proposed that the current division presidents will run for the Board of Directors in 2006 (for the 2006-2008 term) if they so choose. After the 2006-2008 term, the division directors-elect will be elected via election procedures in the current bylaws. (See article on adjacent page.)
