This year’s MAM conference will focus on the many shapes advocacy takes in Maine’s collecting institutions, celebrating what we do well and seeking ways to do better. What are some ways you have advocated for your institution, or for collecting institutions writ large, in recent years? When it comes to legislation, how do you navigate the political arena? What has been an especially effective way you have championed your collections or programs? What does it mean to be an advocate for Maine’s museums and archives? How do we advocate for ourselves, our positions, and our careers?
The 2015 MAM conference will offer a mixture of sessions, workshops, networking opportunities, and a dynamic keynote address that will leave you feeling recharged, connected, and inspired with new ideas to assist you in the care and management of your collecting institution.
Sessions will include:
