The American Alliance of Museums Annual Meeting & MuseumExpo is the largest gathering of museum professionals in the world, and will be held at the America’s Center Convention Complex in St. Louis May 7 – 10.
The 2017 Annual Meeting & MuseumExpo attracts leaders and decision makers from a wide range of cultural institutions, including art, history, and science museums; military and maritime museums; children’s museums; aquariums, zoos, arboretums, and botanical gardens; and historic homes and sites.
“Going to AAM”–as attending the conference has come to be known–is considered the quintessential experience for museum professionals. The program is jam-packed with opportunities to hear diverse perspectives on a wide range of topics; to connect with your colleagues from across the country and around the world; and to engage in meaningful dialogue with peers from diverse backgrounds and from museums of all types.
Catch HEC-TV’s President, Dennis Riggs, speak May 8 at the Thought Motivators discussion during the Expo!
This year’s theme will be “Gateways for Understanding: Diversity, Equity, Accessibility, and Inclusion in Museums.”
AAM is also seeking a diverse group of volunteers to welcome attendees at the world’s largest gathering of museum professionals.
Volunteers will be needed to assist with logistics at the Expo, as well as assist at tours, workshops and other events at area museums.
Volunteers must live, work or study in Missouri or Illinois, commit to a four-hour shift, and attend an orientation session. Volunteers will receive one complimentary day’s registration at the conference in return for covering a four-hour volunteer shift.
Those interested in volunteering should email firstname.lastname@example.org.
