Museum Advocacy Day 2012

Feb

28

Museum Advocacy Day presents an opportunity for individuals involved in the culture of museums to travel to Washington DC and advocate for policy and funding issues that affect their field.  Taking place February 27th and 28th, this two day event includes training to become an advocate for your cause, networking with others in the museum field, and arranged meetings with Congressional offices to present your case.

Issues that will likely come up in these meetings include federal funding for agencies and programs that support museums, federal education policy (including the impact of No Child Left Behind on museums), the economic role that museums play in communities, nonprofit tax-exempt status, charitable giving, and historic preservation.

Despite these seemingly weighty topics the American Association of Museums, the organizer for this event, is encouraging anyone with an interest in the museum field to participate including staff, volunteers, trustees, students, and even museum enthusiasts.

To learn more about this event or to register to participate, please visit the American Association of Museums website.
