First Call for American Association of Museums 2013 Session Proposals

25 May 2012 3:43 PM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

The Small Museum Administrators Committee/Professional Network of AAM wants to make sure that there will be plenty of sessions for you and your colleagues from small museums at the 2013 AAM Annual Meeting in Baltimore. To do that we need your help.

The 2013 theme, The Power of Story, provides a wide range of opportunities for us to share our ideas, successes and challenges. The attached theme description from AAM gives some examples and we know there are lots of stories ready to be told by the small museum community. But don’t let that limit your thinking. Session proposals are welcome on any topic.

If you have ideas for sessions or speakers, send me an e-mail. Let me know, also, if you are interested in working on some of these ideas that have already been suggested:

Kids in Historic Houses

Using Volunteers in the Collections

Museum Ghosts and How to Live With Them

Preparing Museum Studies Graduates to Work in Small Museums

Using Kickstarter and Other Micro-Giving Methods

Building Projects for Small Museums

Museums Without Buildings

Advocacy Outside the Capitol/Statehouse

Teaching Your Board to Ask for Money

Breaking With Museum Traditions (like holiday decorating or local art shows)

I look forward to hearing from you.
