SMR General Assembly, Winter 2019

Last week, SMR members gathered for the annual winter General Assembly. After recapping SMR’s various activities of the past semester, members discussed initiatives—professional, social, and other—to pursue for the remainder of the academic year, as well as plans for next year. By all appearances, Winter 2019 should be another busy and rewarding semester!

First 2018–19 General Assembly

Last week, SMR members met for their first General Assembly of the 2018-2019 school year. Members discussed plans for the upcoming school year, ranging from social events to workshops for professional development. Additionally, the Michigan Music Forum was renamed as the SMR Forum to better reflect the goals and activities of the organization. We’re all looking forward to implementing the ideas we discussed and growing SMR!
