Participant Protection

MAPA exists to promote the growth of the performing arts through competition, performance, and educational activities and to encourage goodwill, good sportsmanship, and camaraderie through such activities. In support of this mission, MAPA is committed to treating performers, staff, volunteers, and other members of our indoor percussion & winds community with dignity and respect. All MAPA participants are required to uphold high standards of business and personal ethics in the conduct of their duties and responsibilities. MAPA has adopted the same protocol and procedures for background checks and the completion of the "SafeSport™️ Trained" Abuse Prevention course as WGI.
