Advocacy Alert: April 15

Atlanta Offerings: Don’t Miss the Federal Agency Pavilion and Advocacy Sessions

The upcoming Alliance Annual Meeting offers several opportunities to connect with federal agency staff, hear about the impact of federally-supported programs for museums, and get important policy and advocacy updates. We hope you will plan to attend some of these unique programs.

Program officers from a number of federal agencies—including IMLS, NEA, NEH, Department of the Interior, and the State Department, among others—will be available to answer your questions about grant opportunities, provide tips on successful grant applications and provide feedback on your prospective project ideas. Also learn about other federal resources and opportunities to collaborate with government agencies.

Alliance President Ford W. Bell will moderate this session with federal agency leaders.
