The Association of Towson Composers was established to focus the concerns of the music composition students of Towson University. The Association serves as a collective voice in affairs that concern all student composers. It is a collective body made up of all students enrolled and working toward degrees in composition at TU. The ATC has no size limit, and membership is automatic upon acceptance into the composition degree program. The entire membership meets at least one time per semester.
The National Association for Music Education is the largest professional music education organization in the world. The collegiate chapter at Towson University strives to provide valuable field experience as well as other techniques and methods necessary to prepare students for a career in music education, while providing contacts and references in the field. Towson's CMENC chapter serves to provide a supportive network and open forum for undergraduate and graduate students, where future and current music educators are given opportunities to grow professionally through workshops, conferences, publications, and other sources.
