Join the West Virginia Association of Museums virtually, from March 22 through March 26 for our 2021 conference: “Stayin’ Alive: Sustainability, Relevance, and Culture.” In light of COVID-19 developments, our programming will be offered virtually in 2021.
Each year, we see museums, large and small, scale back their operations, or in the worst case, close their doors entirely due to challenges with sustainability and relevance to their communities. West Virginia’s museums share these same challenges, and the good news is, we are here to help. With this conference, we intend for our sessions to offer practical guidance on how to stem the tide, and keep your museum going strong well into the 21st century.
