Session Proposal Deadline: Tuesday, September 15, 2015
You will be notified of your status by Friday, September 18, 2015

This year’s conference theme explores innovation as a means of raising the level of excellence in the work we do in accordance with industry standards as well as responding to the way history is preserved and information is shared in a rapidly changing world.


UMA is seeking people interested in sharing their stories, successes, and challenges with the Utah museum community in posters that present strategies and ideas for strengthening the future of Utah museums, their programs, collections, and communities. Proposed Poster Sessions should reflect this year’s theme of innovation and best practices.


The Poster Session is an opportunity to share your research and/or projects in an informal setting. If your proposal is accepted you will be required to make a poster according to the dimensions detailed below. During the Poster Session, you will have a chance to answer questions and interact with Conference attendees regarding your poster.



How to submit

Use the Poster Proposal form below to submit your proposal by the deadline.
