MusiWeb is sent by email and can be downloaded from the "members only" section of the Website. Any member who does not have access to Internet may request a paper copy ($18 per year).
Â Q. How can I contribute to MusiWeb (journal of the QMTA)?
A. We are always pleased to receive your articles and comments to be inserted under the following headings
* Sotto Voce: Members' news.
Â Q. Who can join the Board of directors?
A. The QMTA is directed by a volunteer council. All active and provisional members can be part of the Executive Committee and friend members can become directors. The Committee is elected each year, during the QMTA General meeting. Board members are listed on the Contact page.
Â Q. Why do membership dues include liability insurance?
A. As we are remunerated to teach our students, we are practicing a commercial activity that exposes us to different types of risks that can generate civil liability lawsuits. Even if we teach in a school, we need some protection when outdoor activities like concerts, exams, and festivals are taking place. We also need protection during various QMTA events, and against combined lawsuits involving the QMTA members as an association. If this insurance was to be taken individually by each teacher, the premiums would be unduly high, but the QMTA is in a position to provide it to each of its members under a group insurance policy. It is offered at a very reasonable rate because we share it with members of all the other provincial associations affiliated with the Canadian Federation of Music Teachers' Associations (CFMTA) across Canada. In order for this insurance to be in force, all the members must participate. This insurance is mandatory for all QMTA active & provisional members as it is mandatory for all the members of the other provincial associations.
