Seward conference website LIVE!

Time to start making your travel plans for the 2014 Annual Joint Conference in Seward, October 1-4, 2014.  The conference website is live at www.resbayhistorical.org

Museums Alaska’s theme:

Milestones: Interpreting events that change the course of communities.

Museums often preserve and share the impact of community changing events from the tragic to the triumphant. We collect objects, record accounts, and share stories. On the 50th anniversary of the Great Alaska Earthquake and the 25th anniversary of the EXXON-Valdez Oil Spill, the 2014 Museums Alaska conference will explore the opportunities and challenges museums face in commemorating such community milestones.

Keynote Speaker: Dr. Jan Ramirez

We are thrilled to announce Dr. Jan Ramirez, Curator and Vice President of Collections at the National September 11 Memorial Museum,will be our keynote speaker for Museums Alaska.
