AAM Annual Meeting & MuseumExpo

The 2016 AAM Annual Meeting & MuseumExpo Will be Held in Washington, DC!

We are thrilled to announce that the AAM Annual Meeting & MuseumExpo will be held in Washington, DC, a city with over 200 museums!

We invite you to join us over Memorial Day weekend—May 26-29, 2016—for the premier networking and professional development opportunity for museum professionals.

In 2016, we will explore Power, Influence and Responsibility and ask museums across the country to consider: How does your museum use its power?

Your chance to help develop the program begins Tuesday, July 14, when the session proposal process opens. We encourage those who are submitting proposals to join the “Developing a Successful AAM Session Proposal” webinar on Wednesday, July 15 for useful tips and guidance. 

Museums are powerful community assets economically, culturally, educationally, and as places to convene and discuss issues of the day. They memorialize historic events and bear witness to political and social change. They strive to foster healthy dialogue and provide a venue for healing and renewal. Museums use their power to teach respect for cultural differences and foster community cohesion and sustainability.  How is your museum using its power?

Washington, DC, is one of the most powerful cities in the world and the proud home of more than 200 museums and embassies representing 176 countries. Memorials and monuments define the city’s landscape, honoring our nation’s greatest leaders and fallen heroes, and providing the perfect backdrop for reflecting on how museums preserve powerful memories.

Witness the incredible power of just one person—you. Registering for the annual meeting is an important step in advocating for yourself, your museum and the cause of museums. Our very presence in our nation’s capital will demonstrate the undeniable power of museums.
