This fall, rather than host our traditional Annual Meeting, WMA will partner with 4 state museum associations to run small, safe, in-person pop-up museum professional development events in 4 different cities. Following local health and safety guidelines, these half-day experiences will include learning and networking opportunities. State museum associations are a crucial partner in WMA’s effort to help museum people reconnect, learn, and support one another in person once again. Please join us! ////// October 1 - Thanksgiving Point Institute, with the Utah Museums Association ////// October 6 - Arizona Historical Society, with the Museum Association of Arizona ////// October 20 - Oakland Museum of California, with the California Association of Museums ////// October 27 - The Burke Museum, with the Washington Museum Association.
