WaMA aspires to include sessions representing the diversity of museum work across all disciplines/specialties, regions, and museum sizes. We encourage sessions that include multiple presenters. Sessions that relate to the conference theme are especially competitive.

  • Lectures and panels will be 60 minutes followed by 15 minutes for Q&A.
  • Workshops/interactive sessions may be 1-2 hours long.

Topics may include but aren’t limited to: community engagement, accessibility, equity, diversity and inclusion, collaboration, exhibit development, strategic planning, collections stewardship, facilities and safety, technology, cultural tourism, interpretation, museum management and leadership, and fundraising.
