Call for Proposals

All aboard! for Nevada Museums Association Conference in Ely, Nevada on October 8-11, 2019. The theme “Laying the Rails” inspires a closer look at how we, as museum professionals, utilize day-to-day operations to cement our foundations and build for the future.

Are your museums’ processes and procedures staying on track? This conference will discuss museum methodologies for putting “how we do things” into best practices documents such as collection policies, board charters, strategic plans, etc.

This theme also incorporates the spirit of the transcontinental railroad’s sesquicentennial celebration. Museums across Nevada are educating their communities on the importance of the anniversary and why it should be celebrated. The theme invites a closer look at year-long programmatic themes, engine-ous social media outreach, and the junction of past and present within museum spaces.

We are requesting submissions related to these topics for the 2019 conference program. Please email your session proposals to Dustin Wax at dustin@burlesquehall.com by April 15th APRIL 30, 2019, using the subject line “NMA Session Proposal”.
