CALL FOR PROPOSALS:
The California Association of Museums invites YOUR ideas and expertise.
The 2018 CAM conference will be held February 5-7, 2018 in Palm Springs, California. The deadline for proposals is Friday, May 26, 2017.
To prepare for 2018, please see review the Program Committee Goals and the variety of program formats available. CAM is here to help. If you have a great idea or need guidance, reach out to Jessica Monahan, CAM’s Program Manager. She can help connect you to additional resources and support.
The Program Committee’s overall goal is to produce interesting, useful, thought-provoking, relevant and interactive programs that explore and discuss
internal trends or external factors that affect the future of California museums
explore/discuss “best practices” in museums and strategies for achieving excellence
model strategies to explore/discuss how other museums can learn from these experiences.
The most successful sessions and workshops at CAM conferences delve deeply into
issues or trends and explore real and scalable solutions
use multiple case studies that are candid, relevant to museums of varying sizes, and honest about lessons learned
feature compelling, organized, and knowledgeable presenters
actively engage and involve the program participants (not just “talking heads”).
Proposers are encouraged to represent the diversity of the museum field in their proposals. This diversity includes the geographical region, size, discipline, and age of the institutions represented on the panel as well as the race/ethnicity, ages, and genders of the presenters. MORE INFO
