2014 Conference Program

For collecting institutions and organizations in Maine, planning for our future is equally important as preserving our present and past.  While the future in its very essence hinges on the unknown, there is groundwork we can lay now with the goal of meeting these upcoming challenges head on, and enabling us to flourish in their wake.

How will we continue to care for our collections?  What can we do to retain and increase membership and visitation?  Will we be able to maintain a presence of strong leadership within our organization?  What actions can we take now to ensure our success and growth for years to come? 

Join your colleagues throughout Maine for a full day of professional development opportunities including:

  • Multiple blocks of breakout sessions
  • Networking lunches
  • Thought-provoking keynote address
  • Poster Displays
