February 1, 2019 - 11:59 pm Deadline for early registration discount

The annual SMA conference attracts more than 300 museum professionals, board members, and volunteers from a wide variety of small museums. They attend sessions on topics ranging from collections and education to staffing and board issues. We offer a large Museum Resource Hall and plenty of informal networking opportunities for you to talk with (and get ideas from!) other small museum professionals and volunteers.

This year, the SMA conference will explore the theme, "Agents of Change: Leadership in Small Museums."
