This year's Annual Conference theme

Navigating Challenges: Cultivating the Attitude of “Yes!”

21st century museums face 21st century challenges. We wonder what to collect and where to store the collection, how to integrate technology, and how to reach new and more diverse audiences. We struggle at times to balance agendas, raise money, change leadership, plan for succession, address crumbling infrastructure and/or new construction, and consider board/staff relations. These challenges may at times seem daunting, but there are plenty of models and creative solutions that can help move your institution forward.

Join a group of supportive colleagues to tackle these topics and other subjects at the MAAM Annual Meeting in the scenic Hudson Valley. Amid the marvelous fall foliage and the Hudson Valley’s great bounty, in a retreat-like setting, we will tackle these issues and more.

Whether you are at a small historic house or a large art or natural history museum, an emerging professional or a seasoned expert, you will find something for your museum at this conference. Take the train or drive your car to enjoy two informative days on the Mighty Hudson! Come early to explore some wonderful museums, and perhaps stay the weekend to see all that the Hudson Valley has to offer.
