MAM 2012 Preliminary Conference Program

 

The annual Maine Archives and Museums conference brings together Maine’s collecting institutions to exchange ideas, tackle challenges, and broaden skills. Whether you are a seasoned museum professional, volunteer, archivist, or the only staff member of a small historical society, the MAM 2012 conference program has something for everyone. The conference will not only expand your skills and inspire you as you move forward toward future goals, it is also the perfect place to network and join a generous community willing to help you get to that next step.

  • Special Tours ( HudsonMuseum, Paige Farm & Home Museum)
