MMEA manually updates the member list daily, Monday through Friday. You may need to wait a day after renewing before signing in to opusevent.com.

You, as the sponsoring teacher, must be present when the student records his/her audition. Recordings may not be digitally altered. Read the full Digital Ethics Policy for details.

Late submissions will not be accepted. Give yourself a few extra days to handle snow days and other circumstances.
