Association of Art Museum Directors

Organizations large and small share the challenge of maintaining momentum as leadership changes. Some flounder while others thrive. American Alliance of Museums’ Council of Affiliates, representing 26 museum associations (including us!), invites you—especially volunteer board members and trustees—to join in sharing pitfalls and successes at #AAM2016 during the Marketplace of Ideas! Friday 3-5pm. Should be a great session!
