The Small Museum Association is planning its 32nd Annual Conference, which will be held in Ocean
City, Maryland on February 14-16, 2016. As the only conference in the country dedicated specifically
to small museums, this gathering draws museum professionals from the Mid-Atlantic region and across
the country as our membership and attendee base continues to expand.

SMA provides a unique and stimulating environment for a diverse array of individuals and institutions to
meet and learn from each other, sharing their expertise, building capacity, and increasing professionalism.
The goal of the conference is to support and nurture the small museum community through a mix of
invited speakers as well as workshops, presentations, and discussions. Conference sessions typically
include practical, informative presentations and in-depth discussions, showcasing examples of projects
and initiatives that are relevant to small museums with limited resources.
