Don’t miss the chance to sharpen your skills, meet other museum professionals and gain valuable insights into your museum career. WaMA is delighted to offer scholarships to students and emerging professionals to attend our annual conference. Here’s what two recent scholarship attendees had to say about the conference.

“(T)he WaMA sessions I attended and the people I spoke to all seemed alive with action. The love these museums had for the communities that called them a second home was palpable and not taken lightly.”

“I was blown away by the generosity of WaMA members with their expertise and resources.”
