Mission + Values

NYCMER provides a forum for museum education professionals to address meaningful issues relevant to our work and to exchange and disseminate current information.

Through innovative programming that responds to current trends in museum education and reflects the global culture of New York City, NYCMER kindles a transformative force of museum professionals.

What we do:
We collaboratively develop professional development opportunities for our members and guests such as workshops, roundtable discussions, seminars, symposia, peer groups, and conferences. We promote career development through an active job board, resources, and programming. We advocate for our members, our audiences, museum education, and equity in our field.

NYCMER was founded in 1979 and continues to grow with approximately 400 members from the tri-state area and beyond, representing a variety of disciplines, work settings, roles and career stages.
