MAMA will hold its annual meeting in Joplin, Missouri, Oct. 24-25, 2014. For the 4th 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. Sessions typically provide practical tools, examples, and discussions.
This year, the theme of Annual Meeting will be “Bailing Wire and Bubblegum: Cost Effective Solutions.”  Planned sessions already include: website design on a budget, simple and practical approaches to dealing with hazards, practical preservation of documents, and exhibits on a shoestring.

We invite proposals for sessions. Proposal topics should present low-cost, effective solutions to issues faced by museums and archives. We encourage you to seek out people from other institutions to collaborate on a panel.  Panels/sessions will be 90 minutes in length. All presenters must register for the conference at a reduced presenter rate.
