MTAC Santa Monica Bay is pleased to offer Contributory Membership to any Active Members of MTAC as per Article IV, Section 11(c) of the MTAC Bylaws:

Contributory Branch Membership is not a class of membership, but describes the way in which an Active Member of a Branch (the “Primary Branch”) may pay a contributory fee for association with, and limited participation in, only one other Branch (the “Secondary Branch”). The approval and acceptance of Contributory membership is governed at the sole discretion of the Secondary Branch. Contributory Membership fees are established solely by, and paid directly to, the Secondary Branch. Contributory Members do not have the right to vote and are not eligible to hold office in the Secondary Branch. Contributory Members may not enter Certificate of Merit students through their Secondary Branch. Any Secondary Branch benefits or privileges the Contributory Member may receive are governed at the discretion of the Secondary Branch.

Please also note that teachers may not enter Southern California Junior Bach Festival (SCJBF) students through their Secondary Branch.
