Annual Meeting and Conference

Maine Archives and Museums holds an annual conference each fall with professional development sessions, rousing plenary presentations, networking, and more. The annual meeting of MAM's membership also takes place at this time--this is your chance as a MAM member to vote on new officers or changes in policy, or to address issues that affect the organization and its membership.

The conference offers 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.

Also check out our other event offerings throughout the state throughout the year!

Maine Archives & Museums Annual Conference 2024


Supporting Each Other Through Community

2024 Maine Archives & Museums Annual Conference

Friday, October 4, 2024

Lewiston-Auburn Campus - University of Southern Maine 

Keynote speaker: Julie Golia

Plenary speaker: Rachel Ferrante

As we travel to Lewiston-Auburn for this year’s conference, let’s think about our role in the communities we serve.

We often focus on past decades and centuries, but what about what’s happening around us right now?

How do we respond to tragedy and celebrate joy? What is worth preserving for future generations? How do we support each other?

2023 was a tumultuous year for many of us. There were extreme weather events, deep personal tragedies, and the pressures of ever-changing culture and technology. What are some ways that you gave and received support?

We will hold this year’s conference in-person at the Lewiston-Auburn campus of the University of Southern Maine. This will be a hybrid conference, so attendees will have the option to join virtually as well as physically.
