The Boston EMPs (we’ve talked about them) are putting on a conference session proposal writing workshop at Diesel Cafe in Davis Square. This is great timing to put the finishing touches on that proposal you’re perfecting for the NEMA conference deadline of February 3.

Even if you’re not putting together a proposal – and you should really think about it! – this promises to be a good overview of this little-talked-about step in getting your name out there and taking your museum career to the next level.

Here’s their description:

Have you thought about presenting at conference, but didn’t know where to begin? Do you have an idea you want to share with the museum community but need some help with the next steps? Join us for a session proposal writing workshop on January 19th at Diesel Cafe in Davis Square.

We’ll take the intimidation out of the equation and have a conversation about what makes a session proposal a success, and we’ll go through the practical considerations of actually making it happen. Lots of time for Q and A, so come with ideas…we’re looking forward to seeing you there!

RSVP on the Boston EMP Facebook page, and while you’re there, follow the group.
