On October 15th we will be hosting another National EMP workshop. The workshop will be based on curriculum developed by AAM and presented by Dan Yaeger, the Executive Director of NEMA (New England Museum Association). Dan will be speaking about Networking and Personal Branding. The workshop will take place at the Tufts University Art Gallery at 5:45pm. The presentation will begin at 6pm and may last two hours depending on participation and questions.
Please meet in the gallery at 5:45pm. We will then go down to a classroom space where the workshop will take place. You can find directions to the galley on this website :http://artgallery.tufts.edu/plan/directionsParking.htm
These EMP Career Workshops are free to AAM members and require pre-registration via the AAM website. In addition to registering on the AAM website, please email us at BostonEMPS@gmail.comas well.
The registration website is currently being created. Please stay tuned for more details and a link.
