The PA Museums Annual Conference offers museum professionals an interactive forum for the exchange of ideas, professional networking and discussion of trends in the museum field. The event is an excellent opportunity for professionals to reconnect and recharge as well as learn from colleagues.
Pennsylvania’s museums faced daunting challenges in 2020. As we work in 2021 and into the more distant future, we know there will be more obstacles to navigate and more changes to come. With new tools and discoveries, visitor expectations shift. People who work in museums – staff, trustees, volunteers, interns, donors, and contractors – bring with them a level of devotion and a willingness to put the museum and its future first. Still, service is central to our museum missions.
As technology, scholarship, activism, and member needs move us ahead, how can our museums continue to serve their communities? How can museum leadership and practice, embrace, support, and reward the value of service?
