AEMS regularly convenes stakeholders from the arts and education field and civic leadership to exchange information, discuss relevant topics, model programs and best practices, and develop collaborations within the arts education community. AEMS conferences, convocations, roundtables, and summits offer arts education practitioners and supporters in Maryland a rare opportunity to network with their peers, present in their area of expertise, and learn directly from specialists about the most pressing issues affecting the field. Further, these gatherings provide space for leadership from the arts and education fields to engage in policy issues affecting the quality of, and access to, arts education and develop strategies for substantive improvement. Attendees are encouraged to bring the knowledge gained from these events back to their respective school districts and institutions to promote and enhance arts education initiatives on both the local and statewide level.
