Each May, NYCMER proudly hosts its annual conference. On January 30th, we are holding a special prep session – we want YOU to participate in the conference as an attendee, and also, if you’re up for it, as a presenter! Presenting is exciting and rewarding, and we bet attendees will find your experience valuable, but it can also be daunting. We will walk you through the conference theme and the proposal process, while providing some helpful tips. We will also talk about how to attend a conference, with some general information relevant when attending any conference, details about our conference, and some handy tips to keep in your pocket as an attendee.
The NYCMER conference is a gathering of educators, managers, and others who work in all types of museums, historic houses, libraries, outdoor settings, colleges/universities, and generally those who share a common interest in informal learning spaces and pedagogy. It is a chance to mingle with, and learn from, your colleagues across the field. This year, the conference will be held on Monday, May 13th at Teachers College with the theme of “Why Museums? Reflection and Revitalization in the Field of Museum Education.” Proposals to present are being accepted now, through February 12th.
This session will take place on Zoom. Join Board Members Sonya Ochshorn and Brian Levine who are both experts in the NYCMER conference. In addition to presenting at the conference and sitting on the Conference Committee, both served as Vice President and chaired that committee. We hope you can join us for what will be a practical and informative evening.
NYCMER is committed to providing opportunities for all of our members to participate in our programs and engage with one another. This program will be held on Zoom with auto-captions turned on. Should you have any accessibility concerns, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible.
