Why You Should Attend

This is your opportunity to speak to your legislators on behalf of your institution! Suggested talking points include:

  • Utah’s diverse and thriving museum community benefits the state’s cultural tourism portfolio and contributes a measurable, positive impact on the state’s overall economy.
  • Continued legislative support for museums will help safeguard Utah’s cultural legacy for future generations of visitors and residents.
 

How to Prepare for Museum Advocacy Day!

  • Familiarize yourself with your institution’s legislators. Visit www.le.state.ut.us for more information.
  • Create a quick fact sheet about your museum. Include your mission statement, how many visitors  you served in the past year, a description of what your institution has accomplished with the help of OMS grant money (if applicable), and general contact information.
  • Emphasize “substance over style”… Museum Advocacy Day is less about “Show and Tell” and more about communicating the need for continued legislative support.
  • The American Alliance of Museums has great resources.
