The Tri-M Music Honor Society, a nationally recognized honor society, is sponsored by NAfME: the National Association for Music Educationhttp://musiced.nafme.org/tri-m/·
- There are more than 5,500 chapters worldwide.
- The National Association of Secondary School Principals has placed this program on the NASSP National Advisory List of Student Contests and Activities for 2014-2015.
