Millard Burt
Past President - 1951-1952


Director of the Raleigh Concert Band in the 1950’s.

NCMEA became a reality under Millard Burt’s administration.

NCMEA was actually approved in 1947, but it required five years to work out the bugs and sell the new association to the component groups. At the fall conference in 1951, the Contest-Festival Association, the NCBA, the Orchestra Directors Association, the Piano Teachers Association, and the Vocal Teachers Association all approved the NCMEA constitution and agreed to accept affiliation with the larger group.
