Support WVAM

Our mission is to serve, educate, advocate for, and enhance communications within the museum community. When you donate to WVAM, you are helping us achieve this mission by supporting:

Annual Conference

Our largest event of the year is our annual conference, which involves a lot of planning and effort! This event brings together members from across the state to learn from museum professionals and non-profit experts. Learn more about our annual conference.

Member Support

WVAM carries out its mission by listening to its members, serving their interests, and keeping the members informed of current standards and activities on a national scale. Gain access to WVAM resources, discounts, our newsletter, support, and more by becoming a member of WVAM. We offer memberships that are tiered to your budget - from individual to large institutions. Become a member today and join the WVAM community.

Operational Costs

WVAM is made up of volunteer staff and an AmeriCorps. A general donation will go towards annual memberships to large associations that give us access to benefits we can share with our members, paying for newsletter publications, website costs, and other operational fees. 

Workshops and Webinars

In addition to the annual conference in the spring, WVAM hosts a Fall Workshop Series. Your support goes towards expanding this program to offer speakers and workshops relevant to what our members need.
