2023 Summer Professional Development Conference

July 26–28, 2023

Prior to the start of each new school year, FVA holds its Summer Conference. At this time, teachers are afforded an excellent opportunity to renew professional acquaintances, meet new people and to participate in enlightening workshops. This convention is designed to address concerns and discuss ideas that are immediately applicable to teaching in the upcoming year. Always useful are the choral Reading Ssessions, where new or tried-and-true music is introduced. All-State music for Middle and High School Choruses is read and sometimes conducted by the next clinician. Also, one of the two annual FVA General Membership meetings is held.
