About the Conference

For the 2020 Joint Conference – Museums Evolving – we invite members our museum community to propose sessions that lead and engage others in discussions about the evolution of museums, produce solutions to common challenges, and support advancements in our field. We welcome proposals that explore how museums have changed, and how they will continue to do so as their communities become the center of everything they create and share with their audiences.
