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.
