Deadline: 5/1/2017

The 2017 Washington Museum Association Conference will be held June 21—23 in Moses Lake. 4Culture offers stipends of $250 each to King County heritage museum staff, volunteers, and board members to attend the annual statewide conference. The 2017 WaMA Conference “Oasis” features Museum Hack, a band of renegade museum tour guides, an opening reception, pre-conference workshops, awards program, annual banquet, and stimulating breakout sessions.

To be eligible for a 4Culture stipend, a prospective recipient must reside in King County, and be a staff member, volunteer, or board member of a heritage organization in King County. 4Culture stipends may be used for conference registration, and to defray travel and lodging costs. To receive the stipend, qualifying individuals must attend the conference and be prepared to write a short summary of their experiences.

An individual requesting a stipend must submit a letter of interest detailing his or her status with a King County heritage museum, his or her reasons for attending the WaMA conference, and his or her reasons for desiring a stipend. Letters of interest should contain the individual’s contact information, including daytime phone number, mailing and e-mail addresses; and be sent as an email attachment to Brian Carter, brian.carter@4culture.org.

The application deadline is May 1, 2017, and notifications will be sent out to applicants by May 15, 2017. Stipend checks will be presented to recipients during the WaMA Annual Awards program, Thursday, June 22, 2017.

We're awaiting the photos from the professional photog of AKCHO's Annual Awards event on Tuesday, but here are just a couple of pix from AKCHO's administrator in the meantime (pictured Richard Anderson, Northwest Railway Museum; Frederick Brown; Tom Ikeda, Densho). We had a great time, our host (Northwest African American Museum) was wonderful, our sponsors were generous, King County Councilmember Kathy Lambert was a terrific emcee, and our Award recipients... well, mere words can't begin to describe their importance to our community. But we'll be posting lots of words on our website over the next couple of weeks anyway, so you can read all about our honorees. That'll be at www.akcho.org
Thanks, everyone! Let's do it again next year!
