Mid-Atlantic Association of Museums Annual Meeting 2017 @ Renaissance Pittsburgh Hotel
Oct 19 – Oct 21 all-day

Focused on the continuing MAAM theme to push the envelope, “Making Museums Matter: From Advocacy to Action” will address the centrality of audience and communities to the success of our institutions during changing times.  Pittsburgh’s renaissance from a rust-belt city to an urban center of thriving ethnic neighborhoods, progressive philanthropy, “good eats,” and great museums and cultural institutions, is the perfect setting to enter into conversation and debate about the challenges and opportunities of the coming months.  Watch the MAAM website early this spring for a call for session proposals for the conference in Pittsburgh.  MAAM turns 70 in Pittsburgh, so there will be plenty to celebrate and reflect upon during this landmark conference.
