Biographical Info

Aria Strategies provides mission-driven solutions for nonprofits. We help organizations build capacity through six areas of practice: board development and governance, community engagement, fundraising and development, governmental compliance, organizational development, and systems design and sustainability. Our primary purpose is to amplify unheard voices. We support your organization to live its mission!

Amplify Good Podcast: Amplify Good is a podcast that explores the good things people are doing to improve our communities. Listen in as we talk to super cool people from all walks of life to learn how they do good each day, how they affect change and stand up for what’s right. We explore how they fold their values into their work and create goodness outside of work hours, and how they balance the urgency of good work against being present for their own lives. Join Aria Camaione-Lind and her team each month as they talk with the people doing good in their communities!

Amplify Good Blog: Our blog is a way to connect with our current and prospective clients, as well as not-for-profit professionals in general. This space gives us the means to connect with our wider community, engage in conversation, spotlight some of our stellar clients, pass along knowledge we’ve picked up along the way and let you know a little bit more about us. We also feature blog “takeovers” from BIPOC guest writers who participate in Freedom and Liberation work. https://ariastrategiesllc.com/amplify-good

Work 4506 Hollins Ferry Road Baltimore MD 21227 Home Phone: 800-553-3405 Website: Water Mist and Hybrid Water Mist Fire Suppression Systems Website: How we serve Museums and Cultural Facilities

Biographical Info

Fireline is an expert in fire alarm and suppression for museums and cultural facilities. We offer solutions intended to minimize impact to facilities and artifacts in the event of fire. Many of America’s most treasured cultural facilities trust Fireline for fire detection and suppression.

Museums and cultural facilities provide unique fire protection challenges. Many of these facilities were constructed during the 18th and 19th centuries and they are especially vulnerable to fire. Facilities constructed during the 18th and 19th centuries, they are especially vulnerable to fire. Because they are historically significant, fire is a constant concern. Maintaining authentic period architecture while installing modern fire protection features is a major challenge. Fire protection systems in historical facilities must be as unobtrusive as possible. Simply put, sprinkler heads and smoke detectors must not detract from the original architecture and design while at the same time quickly detecting and suppressing a fire.

Fireline has worked with many notable historical facilities to upgrade their fire protection systems. We have installed water mist fire suppression systems interfaced with fire alarm and VESDA (Very Early Smoke Detection Apparatus) early warning smoke detection. Water mist suppression systems use 70%-90% less water than traditional sprinkler systems and are more effective extinguishing fires. Using significantly less water protects the facility and artifacts from damage or destruction not caused by fire.

VESDA systems provide smoke detection far more quickly than standard spot smoke detection and the detection ports are extremely difficult to see from ground level. This enables curators to maintain authentic period architecture while allowing cutting edge technology to detect smoke almost before it can be seen.

Fireline Corporation is the leader in fire protection for museums and cultural facilities.

These are the insights that help us help our clients communicate clearly and in the right voice. Yes, we’re designers, but we’re communicators first. We should talk.

Biographical Info

The Cooperstown Graduate Program is proud to be like no other. We train creative, entrepreneurial museum leaders committed to generating programs and services for the public good. Our students learn by doing tangible, useful work on real-world projects. They dedicate themselves to developing institutions that play a central role in their communities, encouraging broad public audiences to use artifacts and the study of science, art, and history as a catalyst for social change.

Students choose to focus on one of two tracks during their time at CGP: Science Museum Studies and History Museum Studies. Both tracks have a generalist curriculum, so students explore many aspects of museum work.

Our students benefit from small class sizes and a high faculty to student ratio. This allows students to get to know and work closely with professors, who are leaders and innovators in the field. Although CGP itself is a small program, as an academic division of SUNY College at Oneonta students also have access to the resources of a much larger state university.

We love to connect with prospective students, professionals in the field, alumni, or anyone interested in museum studies! Follow us on Twitter and check out our Facebook page.
