time to relax (well, kind of), reflect, and plan for the next year of visitors and learning. As you reflect on the past
year, please consider some of the ways that you have built community through your projects and programs that
you might like to share with your colleagues at the 2010 NEMA Conference this November.
The NEMA Education PAG will once again be hosting its
present and talk to peers about your latest projects and programs. There is space for twelve to sixteen
presenters from museums throughout New England. Presenters are arranged at tables in an informal,
marketplace setting to offer one‐on‐one discussions, displays, and handouts to help inform attendees about
selected programming and projects.
In keeping with this year’ conference theme, we are seeking presenters who will address how their education
initiatives evoke the same wonder and possibility of a Dr. Seuss book and how these inspired learning
experiences serve as measurable “roof”of their museum’ value to audiences and communities large and
small. Whether the “roof”is attendance, evaluation, or a smiling visitor, share why your institution matters.
Since the description above is a general one, it allows for a great variety of content. We are glad to speak with
you before the proposal deadline to answer questions and work out your ideas!
