What would make TVNATS more useful to you?

Just what we’re doing, helping each other learn.
Not sure yet, just moved here! Excited to be a part of TVNATS.
In regards to best times for workshops. I can do about any season. I can do most Fridays and Saturday, but week days are usually filled with teaching. If I know in advance, I can usually figure any schedule out.

I’m excited to have workshops started back up again. I also belong to the Eastern Idaho nats and we have started having student competitions in the Fall. The kids work very hard to become ready for this. We would probably need to do a mid spring competition with TV so that we don’t run interference with EInats.
Spreading the word about nats and in turn, making our collective expertise available to school music teachers
Community! Let's have more events and opportunities large and small to get together.
As an outlet to communicate with colleagues and gain more pedagogical tools.
Student performance opportunities
Opportunities for my students to perform, opportunities for me to get peer coaching
Just joining, still learning the landscape
Opportunity to connect into the artists community
Continuing education in any area.
Continued education and community events for members.

What would be valuable for you or your students?

Contemporary voice styles.
Not sure yet, just moved here! Excited to be a part of TVNATS.
Having workshops on the above topics is always helpful and appreciated
Auditions, masterclasses, workshops
Interpretation and technique and various styles.
Performance opportunities with input from our members
The chance to perform with intent to set goals. An opportunity to have divisions for those with special needs. I have a student with a brain injury that has difficulty standing while singing
