Dear Directors, 


We hope this information finds you well and that you and your families are safe during these difficult times. We all look forward to being out and about, and engaging our students again, hopefully sooner rather than later. 


We are so very sorry for the missed opportunities this spring due to the COVID-19 Virus that ended our Spring 2020 festival season. In an effort to minimize paperwork for all of us, the Central Section CMEA has decided to forward all festival fees in to the 2021 festival season. In the instance you incurred a late fee this year, we will issue a $50 refund. If you desire to have a complete refund of your 2020 Large Group festival fees, please complete this form and our Treasurer and Festival Coordinators will work with you to issue a refund check.


For those of you who were able to take your groups to festivals in Bakersfield, Auberry, Visalia, Porterville, Kingsburg and Reedley, we want to thank you for your participation and remind you to order your plaques/medals as well as complete your adjudicator and festival evaluations.

Thank you for all that you do for kids and be well!
