The Nevada Museums Association is requesting proposals for the 2016 Annual Meeting at Lake Tahoe, October 26 – 28. This year’s theme is Charting a Course to Community Connection.

Everything we do impacts the community and the community impacts us. Sessions will focus on relevance, collaboration and engaging the community. NMA is requesting submissions focused on navigating the relationship between community and culture such as programming, outreach, fundraising, communications, engaging Millennials, collections and anything else relevant to community engagement in museums.
