NETMCDO is the only annual conference specifically dedicated to developing and strengthening career and entrepreneurship programs for musicians! Devote two days to music career issues and leave energized and motivated to better assist your students and alumni.
The conference is an opportunity to exchange ideas and information on best practices in musicians' professional development. We’ve kept the cost to a minimum and the networking, information-sharing, and peer-learning at a maximum.
Our conference is created and run by the group it serves. It is put on by and for career development professionals.
We generally have 40 – 45 music schools and organizations represented at the conference, from universities and colleges, to training orchestras and conservatories. We’ve had a wide range of participants: career center professionals, faculty, support staff, and independent career counselors... Some attendees are brand new to the career services field and some general university career services staff seek to enhance their offerings for music students. This variety makes for rich discussions and great information and idea sharing. So bring along a colleague from your institution to get even more out of the conference.
NETMCDO holistic view: We have grown to realize that teaching, performing, advising, and administering are all part of career development and entrepreneurship education -- so be prepared to be challenged on all fronts!
Here are a few reasons for you (and your institution) to attend the network conference:
Early Bird Special (before March 1st) — $200 per institution for the first participant; $75 for each additional participant.
Regular Rate (after March 2nd) — $250 per institution for the 1st participant; $100 for each additional participant.

Many past participants have remarked that this is the most economical conference they have ever attended ... and the most fulfilling ... and enlightening! We plan to keep it that way.
