The Missouri Association for Museums and Archives (MAMA) acts as a collective voice for the Missouri museum and archives community both statewide and nationally.
MAMA monitors legislation that may affect museums and archives in the state. Board members have testified on legislation in Jefferson City as well as met with state and national elected officials.
MAMA participates in Museums Advocacy Day in Washington, D.C. each year. This event is coordinated by the American Alliance of Museums. In addition to sending representatives to the event, MAMA provides a packet of support materials for each site visit.
