Pre-Conference Updates

For anyone lucky enough to be heading to the AAM Annual Meeting in two weeks, the Emerging Museum Professionals blog has just put up a great post about updating before you get to the conference.

It applies to other conferences as well, so keep it in mind for AASLH and NEMA this fall!

Graduate Student Presentations at AAM

Straight from AAM:

Museum Grad Students,

Here’s a great opportunity to share your knowledge and build your presentation skills at the 2012 AAM annual meeting!

The 2012 Graduate “Flash” Showcase will be held at the AAM Annual Meeting 2012 in Minneapolis St. Paul on Wednesday, May 2, from 12:15-1:45 p.m. This showcase is a series of back-to-back mini-sessions (or 20-minute “Flashes”) on current programs, projects, or research presented by graduate students or recently-graduated emerging professionals with less than two years experience in the field.

To propose a “Flash” showcase, graduate students and other emerging professionals must be members of AAM and must be available for the presentation on Wednesday, May 2, from 12:15-1:45 p.m.  Submission deadline is January 13.
