Conversation Tables

I don’t know if y’all realize this, but the UMA board talks to each other a lot and we also talk to our friends and colleagues about the work we do, but the most interesting thing is none of us feel we talk enough.  It’s a little weird. As a result, the programming committee thought we would try something a little different. It is my pleasure to introduce to you Conversation Tables. These conversations will allow small-sized groups of professionals to engage in facilitated conversations with their peers on one of three set topics.   

Conversations are designed to be safe environments allowing attendees voices and experiences to respected while allowing for positive inquiry for attendees trying to develop an understanding of what it means to be a museum professional in the 21st century, in a way that encourages informal low-stress networking among peers.   

We hope that you will join us for our experiment and contribute your voice to the conservation.  Our goal is to allow attendees to candidly explore their observations, ask questions you might not feel comfortable asking in a large session, share those middle of the night realizations or insights with friends and aspirational ideas for the future of museums in Utah.
