The Annual Meeting

The Western Museums Association Annual Meeting is the premier venue for those who work in the museum industry to gather, explore ideas, network and learn about new products and services. For attendees, the Annual Meeting provides many benefits that are carried throughout the year. 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.
