Washington Museum Association
The deadline for early registration has passed, but even at the regular rate, attending the Washington Museum Association Conference is a terrific bargain. With this year’s meeting taking place in Ellensburg, the WMA’s annual conference could not be more centrally located. Take advantage of that location, and join your museum colleagues from around the state, June 12-14, for Museums at the Center of Community: Representative, Reflective, and Relevant. A full slate of activities and sessions is planned; from a half-day workshop on membership, to presentations about museum exhibits, programs, and audiences; from a progressive downtown opening reception, to driving tours of Kittitas County attractions; from keynote address by Spokane-based naturalist Jack Nisbet, to the annual banquet with food, drink, and entertainment.
Come experience historic Ellensburg with your peers in the museum field, not just for what is planned at the conference, but also for what is not planned. With attendees gathered from all around the state, the WMA annual conference provides many opportunities for those unplanned, but often productive, spontaneous conversations with colleagues that might never occur at a distance. Don’t wait any longer to take advantage of all the Washington Museum Association Conference has to offer. Register today at washingtonstatemuseums.org/annualconference.html.
One other reason to register for the WMA Conference is the rare opportunity to visit Dick and Jane’s Spot, recently cited in the Seattle Times’ Roadside Attractions. On Wednesday, June 12, conference registrants are invited to an Open House-Yard and Studio Tour at this unique site.
