Deadline: October 15
The Arkansas Museums Association is preparing for its annual conference, which will be held at DeGray Lake Resort State Park March 30 to April 1, 2020. This annual event is run by volunteers of AMA, and conference presenters are typically drawn from the museum professionals in Arkansas or who serve Arkansas organizations.
This year’s theme is “Highways, Byways, and Waterways: Museums in Motion.” We are looking for presentations that address this theme in creative ways and demonstrate the ever-changing world of museum work. We are also asking presenters to submit proposals that fit in the following general categories. Our hope is that we have numerous proposals for each category so our conference is diverse in its offerings and appealing to the many different types of museum professionals in our state.
Several different types of session proposals are sought. Regular sessions will be 60-75 minutes in length. Longer workshops can be approximately two hours.
Proposals are due by October 15, 2020. Members of the AMA Professional Development Committee will review all submissions and notify presenters by November 8th.
