Second, remember that TODAY is the deadline for newsletter submissions and ads! This issue will cover the months of November and December 2012 and January 2013, so please send only information on exhibitions, events, and opportunities that will be relevant to that time period. We are especially interested in your plans for holiday events and exhibitions! Find complete guidelines here. (REMEMBER: You must be an up-to-date member of MAM to submit material to the newsletter! Need to renew? Do it now, online: click here. Not sure of your membership status, or having trouble renewing or registering for the conference? E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.)
Finally, if you represent an institutional member of MAM, don't forget to respond TODAY to our annual institutional member survey! We've designed this year's survey with the goal of compiling an up-to-date, statewide Economic Impact Statement for our industry--and by filling out the survey, you'll also be gathering answers that you can use to create your own organizational Economic Impact Statement. We're going to report on the results at the Annual Meeting and Conference, and the more who respond, the better and more useful the information will be. Don't worry--it's completely anonymous. Follow this direct link and take the survey now! Link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/2013SurveyEIS.
Thanks for all you do to make Maine's community of collecting
institutions stronger, more connected, and better in every way!
