Supporting Organization Membership

Supporting Organization Members are organizations who are dedicated to creating equity in classical music, but do not have active programs that directly train or mentor underrepresented BIPOC musicians.

Numerous staff, faculty, board members and other individuals approved by the organization may access the NIMAN benefits through the organizational membership.

  • (For those who are a program/department/division)
  • (Please limit to 200 words)
  • (e.g. she/her, they/them)
  • (The "Primary Contact" is the organization or division's main representative and will be listed in the member directory. This person is also the primary Organization Administrator. Organization Admin manages your organization's account, including updating the organization's online profile, handling renewal/billing, and adding/removing affiliated users.)
  • (Please select up to 3)
  • In response to the coronavirus pandemic, NIMAN has adopted a pay-what-you-can fee model in 2021, regardless of membership category.
  • By clicking the check box, I confirm that I am committed to creating a level playing field for all classical musicians in the United States. To help implement equitable opportunities and inclusive systems in the field, I will actively participate in NIMAN's efforts to: - Remove barriers to access for musicians from underrepresented ethnicities; - Train and mentor musicians from underrepresented ethnicities for advancement towards a professional career in classical music; - Prioritize diversity, inclusion, and equity in our organization and in classical music to achieve cultural equity* to the fullest extent.

    *CULTURAL EQUITY: defined by Americans for the Arts on May 23, 2016 as “… embodying the values, policies, and practices that ensure that all people — including but not limited to those who have been historically underrepresented based on race/ethnicity, age, disability, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, socioeconomic status, geography, citizenship status, or religion — are represented in the development of arts policy; the support of artists; the nurturing of accessible, thriving venues for expression; and the fair distribution of programmatic, financial, and informational resources."
