New schools who have never been a member of FSMA before should complete the New School Enrollment Form and mail to the FSMA office. If the school is not included in a county-wide group discount payment, a check for the dues amount should be mailed with the form.
Existing member schools will receive renewal paperwork in the mail in April. Reminders are also sent out during the summer and again in August. They are addressed to the Principal, Bookkeeper, and Music Department head.
If you are an existing school who has chosen NOT to renew in the past, call or e-mail Val Anderson at Val@FloridaSchoolMusic.org to re-activate your FSMA membership and request the renewal paperwork.
School districts may pay to enroll all schools within the school district. Total dues will be the sum of each school’s dues based on enrollment category, minus fifteen percent (15%) of that sum. Non-public schools that have one federation or association or belong to a defined organizational structure (diocese, parish, etc.) may qualify for the same fifteen percent (15%) reduction in total dues provided ALL the schools within the organization enroll. Single schools are not eligible for the discounted enrollment dues.
All counties will get a DRAFT invoice in march along with paperwork to indicate whether or not they would like to participate in the group discount program.
Home Education Cooperatives and home educated students must also complete this additional paperwork in order to participate in interscholastic music activities.
