I want to know more about AMA Membership
The Arkansas Museums Association (AMA) was founded in 1966 as an organization of museums and museum personnel dedicated to the promotion of professional standards in Arkansas museums, the encouragement of interaction between members, and the development of public support for and interest in Arkansas museums. AMA welcomes the participation of institutions and individuals committed to these goals.
Benefits of membership include:Networking
Every year AMA offers a number of professional development sessions during the annual meeting and new webinars throughout the year. Topics cover a wide variety of museums issues such as education, exhibitions, collections management, administration and more. See this year's free online professional development webinars.
AMA not only offers scholarships to our annual meeting, but we also offer funds for members to attend other professional development opportunities such as regional or national association meetings and specialized training opportunities.
Each year AMA presents awards to celebrate and encourage excellence within Arkansas museums. Successful award recipients are honored at the AMA Annual Meeting, so you can celebrate your success with your peers. Awards are offered in the areas of education, exhibition, collections care, and media. Volunteers, students, and professional staff are also recognized.
Contribute to your profession. Join one of our many committees, present a session at the annual meeting, facilitate a workshop, or nominate yourself for a board position. Your membership also entitles you to voting privileges at the annual business meeting.
