Time again for the Annual WA State Museum Association Conference

WAMA 2016Once again 200 Washington State Museum directors and curators gathered in Tacoma for the Annual WA State Museum Association Conference. This time we all gathered in what has lovingly become known as “Museum Alley”. I was accompanied by Claire Reiner was representing our Uniting Hearts Academy. We enjoyed the many talks and workshops designed to assist us all in making our Museum’s a more relevant to visit. The various topics dealt with funding, diversity, story telling, Social Media and Promotions, our collaborations with the various City and Councils around our State, outreach in the community around us and too many more to mention them all. New friendships were made. Our Museum engaged into several new collaboration ideas. We hope to share some of them over the next few weeks. We had a chance to visit most of the Museums around us for a variety of workshops, luncheon talks and social mixers. We look forward to meet again next year in Richland,WA.
