Remarkably, few resources exist to guide American museums to find and work effectively with consultants and contractors until now. AAM’s IMP Network, in collaboration with the Association of Registrars and Collections Specialists (ARCS), has developed a guide to assist museum staff at all levels to understand, appreciate, and benefit from working with independent colleagues. Independent museum professionals (IMPs, aka freelancers, consultants, and contractors) are essential to the American museum economy. READ GUIDE HERE Working with Independent Museum Professionals calls out the need for ethical contracting and collaboration to benefit both museum and consultant. Come meet the authors Avi Decter, Managing Partner of History Now and MJ Hagan, Principal of MJH Collections Management in an open discussion moderated by Ernesto Mendoza.
