Muncie is located in eastern-central Indiana and is easily accessible via Interstate-69.
The city is approximately 90 minutes from the Indianapolis airport, and we recommend arriving at said airport if you plan to fly to the conference. We will assist in coordinating rides between composers and may be able to offer a shuttle service to/from the airport if the need arises. If you plan to fly into the Indianapolis airport, please complete the following survey to assist us in organizing efficient travel:
