Nothing beats the in-person experience of AAM’s Annual Meeting and MuseumExpo: meeting colleagues, hearing ideas straight from the source in sessions, and checking out the intriguing displays from exhibitors. But social media adds another dimension to the meeting, allowing the whole museum community to follow the conversation wherever they are, enabling exchanges that wouldn’t otherwise be possible. If you can’t make it to New Orleans for #AAM2019, or you will be attending but want to tap into the expanded discussion, here are the best ways to follow along:

Social Media Journalists
