At the TI:ME/TMEA conference in February, 2015, we will be celebrating TI:ME’s 20th anniversary. It doesn’t seem possible, but 20 years have passed since the idea of TI:ME was first conceived at Villanova University in a lunch meeting with John Dunphy (former TI:ME Exec. Director), George Pinchock, and Tom Rudolph (Exec. Committee Chair and former President). With the help of the late Mike Kovins, Tom Rudolph and John Dunphy traveled to NAMM in 1996 and 1997 and presented a proposal for funding the organization. NAMM did fund the organization and the first official meeting of TI:ME took place in Valley Forge, Pennsylvania in 1997. The first TI:ME conference took place in Pennsylvania in 1999. And, the rest, as they say, is history.

In order to celebrate the 20th anniversary, there are five special TI:ME at 20 sessions planned for the 2015 TMEA/TI:ME Conference.  These include:

• “Music Technology: The Effect on Performance and Education,” Dr. Henry Panion, presenter; 2/13/2015; 2:30 PM - 3:30 PM; CC 204
