Dr. Carl Hancock has been appointed to the Executive Committee of the Society for Research in Music Education (SRME) by the National Association for Music Education (NAfME). His term will run through 2026.

The SRME Executive Committee (EC) facilitates the purpose of the Society by providing leadership, guidance, and means for communication. Specifically, the EC collaborates with and advises the leadership of the umbrella organization, NAfME, on research-related matters pertinent to NAfME’s purposes.

The EC oversees the research sessions and structures of selected NAfME conferences, two research journals—the Journal of Research in Music Education (JRME) and Update: Applications of Research in Music Education, a collection of Special Research Interest Groups (SRIGs), the NAfME-SRME Research Project, and the Senior Researcher Award. The EC monitors the work of the State Research Chairs and the research activities of the affiliated State music education associations.

“I’m honored to accept this, as it speaks to our University, College, and Department’s research impact,” stated Hancock.
