2013 Annual Meeting, Oct. 11-12, Independence

The Missouri Association for Museums and Archives (MAMA) is holding its Annual Conference in Independence, Missouri, October 11-12, 2013. For the 3rd year, the conference will be held jointly with the Missouri Humanities Council. This conference brings together archives, heritage, and museum professionals from a wide range of institutions. Conference sessions typically provide practical tools, examples, and discussions.

This year, the theme of Annual Conference will be the “Community and Collaboration.” In these tough economic times, museums, archives, historic sites and other institutions need the support of their surrounding community more than ever. Collaboration and partnerships can help individuals and institutions stretch limited resources farther.

The event will be held at the Truman Memorial Building and the National Frontier Trails Museum — both in Independence. For more information, email info@missourimuseums.org or check it out online.
