  • In Spring 2012, Executive Director Una McAlinden, along with Principals Arts Leadership (PAL) Program Alumni Laura Ploudré and Doug Poage, were featured in a panel during a national teleconference hosted by the Support Music Coalition – led by the  National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM).

    Their discussion, “Principals Take the Lead with Arts Education Planning”, took place during the National Association of School Music Dealers Conference, and was broadcast to participants across the country.

    Listen to the teleconference* (see instructions below) to learn more about PAL, and to hear how the program has sustainably impacted local schools.
