The National Association of Automobile Museums is a professional center of excellence for automobile museums and affiliated organizations that supports, educates and encourages members to operate according to professional standards of the museum industry.
To be sustainable, NAAM member institutions must continue to grow their audiences and maintain their relevance in their communities. To that end, the 2019 conference theme is “Always Give More Than You Promise,” a slogan borrowed from the Studebaker Bros. Manufacturing Company. The conference’s goal is to provide attendees with tools to innovate, adapt and enhance all facets of Museum operations. Sessions will examine both administrative and curatorial topics, as well as discuss interpretation, programming, and visitor experience initiatives. An additional conference goal is to encourage and facilitate idea and experience sharing among attendees.
Call for Proposals:
Conference organizers are seeking session proposals in both lecture and interactive/roundtable formats. The Annual Conference is the association’s signature event, and is among the most important benefits of NAAM membership. In proposing a session topic for the conference, please consider: the particular relevance of the topic to the automobile museum community, and the potential for the topic to inform and generate discussion among our colleagues. Meeting sessions are 75 minutes in length, including time for questions and discussion at the end of a presentation. Deadline to submit a proposal is November 16, 2018.
