The Museum Assessment Program is one of those program that’s been a major benefit to the field for decades, but unless you’ve participated, it’s a mystery. You may have heard how it can transform an organization, move it to the next level of development, or solve a vexing situation. It sounds dramatic, but I’ve seen it happen at both large and small museums who have gone through the process.
So how does this happen? You can find out at a free webinar about MAP on Thursday, November 10 at 3pm Eastern Standard Time presented by the American Association of Museums and the Institute of Museum and Library Services. Registration isn’t required but you’ll need to do two steps to join the webinar:
- To see the presentation on your computer, use your internet browser to go to
- To hear the presentation on your phone, call 1 (866) 459-4770 and use participant code 8452132.
The timing is perfect: The next MAP application deadline is December 1. Remember, there are four different types of assessment, including community engagement.
MAP is administered by the American Association of Museums and supported through a cooperative agreement with the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
