Illinois Association of Museums Annual Conference
The Annual Conference of the Illinois Association of Museums will be held on September 24-25, 2015 at the Prairie Capitol Convention Center in downtown Springfield, Illinois. The Conference is being co-sponsored by the Illinois State Museum and the Illinois Historic Preservation Agency which will holds its Conference on Illinois History in conjunction with our meeting. In addition, the 14th Annual International Route 66 Mother Road Festival & Car Show will run from September 25-27th. There will be lots to see and do in the Capitol City that weekend! Bring a companion and make a mini-vacation of it!
The IAM Annual Conference is an opportunity to learn about museum best practices, network with other museum professionals from across the state, and participate in tours and workshops to enhance your skills. Conference attendees will be able to attend sessions from both events for an even richer and more beneficial learning opportunity.
