‘Tis the Season for Professional Development

With warmer weather comes a season full of professional development opportunities for individuals in the museum field. I’ve been a bit busy this past week, attending Mid-Atlantic Museum Associations’s Creating Exhibitions at the Liberty Science Center, NJ and helping out with the Annual UHA/MANY Conference hosted by Upstate History Alliance and Museum Association of New York up in Tarrytown, NY. This is a great time of year where museum professionals can re-charge their batteries, reflect on the past and also look ahead to the future.

In looking ahead, there are some great professional development opportunities coming up that I intend to attend including:

While these are some of the latest and greatest (local) professional development opportunities I intend to take advantage of, LinkedIn is a pretty good resource that lists numerous events, conferences and programs and let’s members add events in a calendar format. Be sure to share conference and professional development opportunities (by adding comments to this post) and start networking!
