What Now? What’s Next?

CMA 2019 will offer a hub for knowledge sharing, providing you ample opportunity to network with your peers and colleagues from across Canada. Our goal is to showcase today’s best practices, to shine a light on the museum of tomorrow; the 2019 theme will explore how museums can learn from what is happening today to successfully plan the future.

  • Collections: How will our collections be used to inspire and engage the public we serve?

  • Audiences: How will we broaden and deepen our relationships with our communities in what is perhaps a growing atmosphere of discord, intolerance and mistrust?

  • Leadership, Diversity, Skills Development: What will the museum professional of the future look like? What skills and knowledge will museum workers need to face the challenges ahead?

Please join us in April, 2019 as we celebrate the strength of the Canadian museum community and explore What Now? What’s Next?

Yours in museums,

The CMA 2019 National Conference Planning Committee
