Attention CEOs, Presidents, Directors, VPs, and other museum brass!


Will I see you at the Museum Leadership Dinner? Are you in the know about this great conference event, that you don’t have to attend the conference to attend?


I know you’ve been in the field for a while. I know getting away for a state museum conference can be a struggle. And yet having the chance to talk to other museum leaders can be invigorating. That’s why we created this event – to give you (and me!) the chance to get together with our fellow leaders and network. I can honestly tell you this is one of my favorite parts of the conference.  


We’ve had some brief programs at these dinners in years past. While some of those programs have been fantastic, they cut into the time to discuss our pressing issues with each other. Cecile Shellman, our keynote speaker, will be with us, but won’t be giving any kind of lecture. At Museum Leadership Dinners, I’ve made new friends (and useful contacts), caught up with old friends, gotten creative ideas for managing my organization, and got to know more of my colleagues around the state. Participating in this dinner each year has truly connected me to my colleagues at other institutions.


This job requires a lot. And I’m sure you join me in knowing that you don’t have to know everything, but knowing who to call to find some answers or better information is crucial. And the Museum Leadership Dinner is a good shortcut to knowing who to call.


So come enjoy dinner and good company with your peers. You never know who’ll you’ll wind up sitting next to at the Museum Leadership Dinner. And they might have the expertise you’re looking for!
