PA Museums’ 2017 Annual Statewide Conference, Challenges and Change External Event Page
Erie, Pennsylvania
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.

The one thing constant is change. With our world growing more complex every day, change within museums isn’t just inevitable, it’s necessary to remain critical, meaningful and relevant to our communities. Across Ohio, museums are using this idea to transform their institutions – paving the way with innovative programming and ideas, audience engagement, sustainability, collections care and more – to enhance and support their mission and better serve their community. With the wealth of innovation happening in Ohio museums comes the opportunity for us to share knowledge- what’s worked, what didn’t, and what we learned from it all. Join us in Toledo, April 2nd and 3rd as we explore these topics and more at the 2017 Ohio Museums Association’s Annual Conference, Transforming Museums: Secrets to Success. OMA is looking for innovative and engaging sessions that will create an interactive experience for our conference attendees.
