“Making Collections Meaningful” Keynote Address by Jean Svadlenak In a world where everyone is always on the go and change is constant, long-term viability and sustainability for museums, archives, and related organizations depends on engaging communities and visitors in meaningful ways. We must focus on what we can do uniquely well and tell those compelling stories that bring our community’s history to life. This year’s keynote address by Jean Svadlenak will suggest ways we can look at collections, discover the fascinating stories they tell, and provide tips for planning exhibits that help visitors connect with their community’s unique story, places, and events.  Overnight Accommodations A block of rooms has been set aside at Stoney Creek Inn for October 7.
