Utah honored as MTNA State Affiliate of the Year.
UMTA scored well across the board with the award committee. Perhaps most impressive, was the affiliate's 10 percent increase in membership. UMTA also certified one member in 2007 after certifying an incredible 25 teachers in 2006. The state's five collegiate chapters also drew praise. Other attributes leading to the honor included a state concerto competition, a new member contest for the chapters, a newly published book, Utah MTA Through the Years, the UMTA Student Teacher of the Year Award and newsletter articles on community outreach and education for the arts. The UMTA newsletters particularly impressed the committee with its design and content, as did the conference booklet.
