The CFMTA recognizes there are Registered Music Teachers who transfer their membership from one province/territory to another. These teachers are unable to be recognized by their Provincial Associations once they reach milestone dates of recognition awarded to members who remain in one location.

The National Membership Recognition Certificate provides acknowledgement for those RMTs who are long-time Registered Music Teachers in good standing. The certificate will be granted upon application to those RMTs who have belonged to two or more provincial/territorial associations in the CFMTA. Certificates may be applied for commencing with a total of 20 years’ membership and may be reapplied for every ten years thereafter.

The following criteria and form should be compiled by the applicant and sent to the National CFMTA Secretary. Upon approval, the Province/Territory registrar will receive the certificate, signed by the current President of the CFMTA for presentation by the local branch or organization at their own discretion.

The National Membership Recognition Certificate shall be reviewed by the CFMTA Past President and be administered by the National Secretary.
