New Horizons International Music Association



Your Local NHIMA Representatives

NHIMA Representatives function as liaisons between their local New Horizons groups and New Horizons International Music Association. They pass information of interest from NHIMA to their local groups and also, send to NHIMA, issues their groups would like addressed. They are usually, but not always, different from the contact person for a group. Contacts are the folks you would get in touch with if you wanted to “sit in” on a rehearsal or wanted to join a group and needed more information. They are also the ones who receive renewal notices for NHIMA group memberships.
