PA Museums’ 2017 Annual Statewide Conference, Challenges and Change
Venue: Check the Federations website for location.
Pennsylvania’s museums, historical societies, zoos, science centers, and historic sites step up to challenges amidst continuous change happening inside and outside of our organizations. PA Museums invites you to the city of Erie for our 2017 annual conference to explore our past, present, and future challenges. Throughout our conference, we will focus on changes in our field and in our communities. Our audiences and communities are changing, and our assumptions about visitors’ expectations may need to be revisited. Finding funding for museums and cultural organizations continues to challenge us. Although we may sometimes resist change, the challenges of satisfying the needs of those we serve will push us ahead. Our conference in Erie will bring us together for educational sessions and case studies, presentations from inspiring keynote speakers, tours of Erie’s cultural assets, opportunities to connect with our colleagues, and a celebration of outstanding work at our annual awards presentation. We hope to see you there.
