The National Association of College Wind and Percussion Instructors' 2020 National Conference will be held October 22-24, 2020, at the Hilton Miami Downtown in Miami, Florida, in conjunction with the 2020 National Conferences of the College Music Society (CMS) and the Association for Technology in Music Instruction (ATMI).
Presentation & Performance Proposals
Presentation and Performance Proposal submissions for the 2020 joint CMS - NACWPI - ATMI National Conference will be accepted through March 1, 2020, 11:59PM (CST), using the appropriate online submission form linked below .
Proposal submissions are limited to two proposals per member. Proposers must submit their own work and may not submit proposals on behalf of their students or colleagues, except of course, in the case of proposals where there are multiple performers or presenters - primary and secondary proposers will be designated in the proposal submission process. Proposers agree to present or perform on any day of the conference should their proposal be accepted.

Proposals of a commercial nature that promote products and services will not be considered.
