The Country School Association of America will hold its 2019 annual conference in Maryland—just outside our Nation’s Capital—providing an opportunity to focus on country schools from a national perspective. These modest, decidedly local educational institutions that dotted the countryside were, of course, countrywide—with many similarities but also having important local, state and regional differences. We’ll consider this local/national juxtaposition—still relevant today—at our June 2019 gathering.
The annual Small Museum Association conference attracts more than 300 museum professionals, board members, and volunteers from a wide variety of small museums. They attend sessions on topics ranging from collections and education to staffing and board issues. We offer a large Resource Hall and plenty of informal networking opportunities for you to talk with other small museum professionals and volunteers.
