Museum Conferences

Sun, May 19 - Wed, May 22, 2019
AAM 2019 Annual Meeting and Museum Expo External Event Page
New Orleans, Louisiana
Venue: New Orleans Marriott & Convention Center
oday’s museums are re-examining their role and connection to communities in new ways. There is a growing understanding that our institutions’ long-term viability and financial sustainability is inextricably linked to our ability to be relevant, magnetic, and inclusive. Digital technologies are refining and improving traditional functions such as ticketing, marketing, and fundraising – in addition to driving personalized experiences and new abilities for museums to connect with increasingly tech-savvy audiences. Innovative partnerships with for-profit companies and within mutually aligned sectors like health and education may provide museums access to the financial and technical capacity to help them scale their work. At the 2019 AAM Meeting and MuseumExpo in New Orleans, we will explore how museums are meeting these challenges head-on. We will learn from each other’s trials and errors and connect with colleagues who can help us grow and tackle our own challenges. //// Also, Exhibit at MuseumExpo is the largest gathering of museum professionals. Connect with high-level decision-makers such as directors, curators, financial officers, exhibit design professionals, educators and registrars. Take advantage of the opportunity to meet face-to-face with qualified buyers to showcase your new and innovative products and services to more than 5,000 museum professionals seeking cost- and time-saving solutions for the museum field.

2019 SPOOM Conference - Society of Old Mills External Event Page
Dalton, Georgia
Venue: Historic Prater's Mill is hosting the 2019 SPOOM annual conference
The theme is Milling Around Old Cherokee Georgia. This northwest portion of Georgia was a part of the Cherokee Nation from about 1750 to 1838. While here, the Cherokee brought water-powered milling technology to the region. Even after the Cherokee left on the 1838 Trail of Tears, the area was still known as Cherokee Georgia for decades. ///// "While no Cherokee mills exist today, we will visit Dew's Pond Mill which is built on the site of a Cherokee mill," says Melanie Millican Chapman, president of the Prater's Mill Foundation, Inc. "At Red Clay State Historic Park, we will see the main bearing and a millstone fragment from the Brainerd Mission Mill build in 1820." ///// Participants will also visit mills built by pioneer settlers: Prater's Mill, Dennis Mill, Old Lindale Brick Grist Mill (tentative), and Yarborough Mill. Other mills to see are: Lee and Gordon's Mill, rebuilt after the Civil War; and Berry College Mill, built in 1930 by Henry Ford. ///// Join us for a conference that includes miller training, a banquet, and bus tours of interesting mills in the place the Cherokee called The Enchanted Land.

Country School Association 2019 Conference External Event Page
Adamstown, Maryland
Venue: Claggett Center
The Country School Association of America will hold its 2019 annual conference in Maryland—just outside our Nation's Capital—providing an opportunity to focus on country schools from a national perspective. These modest, decidedly local educational institutions that dotted the countryside were, of course, countrywide—with many similarities but also having important local, state and regional differences. We'll consider this local/national juxtaposition—still relevant today—at our June 2019 gathering.
Thu, September 26 - Sun, September 29, 2019
The Fire Museum Network 2019 Seminar External Event Page
Los Angles, California
Venue: To Be Announced
It is a mix of formal presentations, informal discussions, and tours of local fire and non-fire museum sites…. It’s educational seminars about both operating a museum and firefighting history…. It’s for those who are just starting a fire museum, and those who have been around a while…. It is a time to learn, and a place to see and hear what dozens of other museums are doing (or perhaps what they should be doing)…. It is a chance for you to share problems and solutions, exchange ideas and information, and compare your organization with others…. It is an opportunity network. It is late nights spent discussing how many steam fire engines are left in the country, new exhibit techniques, or the merits of the latest museum collections database program. In short, it's… great friends, great food, and a great fun!
