Subject: COVID-19 and the 2020 WaMA Conference

As we continue to navigate this uncertain time for museums across the state, please know that the Washington Museum Association is taking steps to ensure the health and wellbeing of our members. We are also providing updated information on changing member activities.

Due to the fluid nature of the COVID-19 crisis, we have made the difficult decision to postpone the upcoming WaMA Annual Conference, scheduled for June 17-19, 2020 in Olympia. We are actively working with our partners to rebook planned networking activities in anticipation of a return to Olympia in 2021.

In the meantime, WaMA is exploring virtual resources for our members and is focusing on the recovery period ahead. We hope that everyone stays healthy and safe during these trying times, and look forward to our continued outreach and support for museums across Washington State.
