Museum Conference

WaMA’s Annual Conference in Olympia has been cancelled.  We look forward to next year.
“Museums & Democracy: Advocate, Educate, Participate”

WaMA is excited to announce that we will be heading to Olympia, our state’s capitol, for our 2020 Annual meeting. Olympia prides itself on being the center for our state’s government and a cultural hub for Washington State. We are excited to be coming together as a museum community during a landmark election year, which also includes the 2020 census and the centennial anniversary of women’s suffrage. As centers for community, museums can play a powerful role in encouraging visitors to participate in their local and national government, and provide tools to help visitors advocate for issues that are important to their communities. There are also resources and partnerships with local and national government entities that can provide resources to strengthen our museum community and help us achieve our missions and vision. As we look ahead to a civically-minded year, we turn our focus to Museums and democracy, and the ways in which we can inspire and engage visitors to be more active participants in our communities.

Conference attendees – We have a set of rooms set aside at the Hotel RL Olympia.  Book online.  You may also book by calling the hotel directly at 360-943-4000 and letting them know they are with the WaMA group.
