Annual Meeting

The Western Museums Association’s (WMA) Annual Meeting is the premier venue for those who work in the museum industry to exchange ideas and best practices, network with colleagues, and learn from each other by attending valuable sessions. Attendees come away inspired and energized about their profession. Upon returning home, they seek out opportunities to grow and further the creative culture that is the foundation of our society. 

The Western Museums Association’s 2016 Annual Meeting in partnership with the Museum Association of Arizona will be held in Phoenix, Arizona on September 25-28, 2016. The theme of the 2016 Annual Meeting is Change—something that deeply affects our personal and professional lives.
