Call for Conference Proposals: React & Respond: The Next Steps

Due by Friday, January 19, 2018

How do we react and respond? How do museums stay relevant to today’s visitors in the context of our changing and evolving world? As individuals, educators, and museum professionals we often have immediate reactions to events occurring throughout our communities and nation that require prompt, measured, and considered responses. As public entities, museums must acknowledge and balance competing concerns and ideas from visitors, leadership, boards and donors, institutional missions, trends in the broader field, current events, and emerging movements both local and national.     


The NYCMER Conference Committee is now accepting applications for breakout sessions and poster presentations for the 2018 NYCMER Annual Conference, to be held on Monday, May 21, 2018 at Teachers College, Columbia University.

Proposal applications should be submitted via Google form by midnight on Friday, January 19, 2018. Please refer to the call for proposals and guidelines when preparing your application.

Need help with your session idea? If you have a session idea to share and would like to partner with other museum professionals on your proposal, email NYCMER Vice President Kira Lacks.
