Join the Emerging Museum Professionals (EMPs) monthly meeting to network and learn with your fellow EMPs.
EMPs are any museum professional in the first ten years of their museum career, so if you are in your first ten years, please join us!
The meetings are free. When you register, you will be registered for all of the meetings, but are not required to attend them all and you can cancel your registration at any time.
All topics are subject to change, but below is out tentative schedule:
February 4 - Reintroduce ourselves, talk about our personal goals for the year, see if anyone is interested in being Skillshare presenters, discuss the EMP meeting schedule, and network!
March 4 - How are you planning for reopening considering COVID is back in our lives. What are your museums' plans for the tourist season? Any awesome events or exhibits?
April 1 - Tentatively scheduled as a networking event, but we might ask a speaker to join us. February's meeting will help us decide.
May 6 - Let's talk mentorships! We hope to have a basic mentorship program template ready for discussion. We'd love fellow EMP's thoughts on the plan and what else they'd like to see from a mentorship program.
June 3 - Ashley Bivin will present a Skillshare on Collection Photography for Small Museums.
July 1 - Skillshare from an EMP (Topic and Speaker TBD)
August 5 - Skillshare from an EMP (Topic and Speaker TBD)
