*Mr. Zachary Karcher New D3 Vice President
Goodmorning Everyone! I am excited to be sharing with you that Mr. Zachary Karcher ( Jr. High Instrumental teacher Indiana Area School District ) has agreed to serve as Vice President for D3. I have known Zack for years and we have a wonderful working relationship. I look forward to what he will bring to D3 and to PMEA in this leadership role.
I appreciate those of you who considered this position and for very good reasons could not "step in" at this time. Please know that your continued work and leadership in D3 is vital to our continued success. As you are able - please take a moment to welcome Zack to his new position, and thank him for his service.

*Dear D3 friends...
I hope this finds you well! These are surely anxious times not only personally but professionally. Many of us are being stretched in new directions that frankly, we didn’t sign on for😊. I am encouraged by the abundant ideas and helps that are flooding Facebook and our PMEA website. As a profession we are very creative people and I know that you will each rise to the challenges that are in front of you. Please reach out to me or any of the exec.com. officers if we can be of any help. Utilize the resources that are coming from NAfME and PMEA. Talk to one another and share ideas and resources. We must not only get through this season, we must continue to share the importance of music with our students and our admins and our communities. These days could determine so much about the days that will follow Coronavirus.
I am here to help, be an ear or a shoulder..... PMEA is strong and we will be stronger when this is a memory.
Peace and blessings,
