Hello NEMPN-ers! The annual American Alliance of Museums (AAM) conference is taking place in St. Louis, MO this year and it’s right around the corner. We have members coming from all over the country, making this is the perfect opportunity to meet one another! Check out and use the hashtag #AAMEMP2017 to meet up with other EMPs and see what folks are saying during the conference. We hope to see you there!
Is this your first time attending a conference? Conferences can be pretty intimidating, especially large ones like AAM that are brimming with dreamy, inspiring cultural and museum professionals.
