Social Mixers

Social mixers are a way for like-minded individuals to get together in a casual atmosphere over coffee or drinks to network, build partnerships, brainstorm, learn and engage with colleagues working in collecting organizations and cultural institutions throughout Maine.  

Mixers are held regionally throughout the year and are open to members and non-members alike.  In such a large state, many of us feel isolated in the work we are doing. Coming together occasionally allows us to share and learn from one another, building networks of professionals and friends to help us in the task of preserving Maine's cultural heritage.  

Mixers are often held after one of our professional development workshops.

Social networking is also a focus of our annual conference held somewhere in the state every fall.

See the calendar below for a listing of upcoming events and check back for updates.  We're always working on more!
