Getting Ready for the 2018 MANY Annual Conference!

Erie Canal, Fall Arts Forum, and the Regents Advisory Council

August 28, 2017 Dear Members, Friends and Colleagues, This summer, my social media feeds have been jam-packed with posts about events celebrating New York’s Erie Canal, Suffrage, and WWI anniversary celebrations. As we prepare for fall, and our exciting schedule of eleven MANY Meet-Ups in nine weeks, I thought I’d share a couple of other places you might find MANY.

June 1, 2017   Dear Members, Supporters, and Friends,   We are greeting summer with plans for an exciting fall including an important advance in our technology and member management systems. We have struggled for years with outdated hardware incompatible with current software and an ill-suited database that, as many of you have learned, seems to spontaneously duplicate your account while losing your data!  

Advocacy Starts in Your Backyard!

April 17, 2017   Dear Members, Friends, and Colleagues,   Over the past hundred days, I have read with boundless admiration the passionate letters, emails, and social media posts that you have shared in support of the NEA, NEH, and IMLS. From the largest museums in New York City, to the smallest historical societies in the Finger Lakes, you are ALL speaking up, advocating for the importance of museums and, indeed, to quote Congressman John Lewis, making “good trouble.”

Escape for a Few Rejuvenating Days in Saratoga

Mar 28, 2017
The MANY Annual Conference has grown to become the largest gathering of museum professionals in New York State. Our conference next week in Saratoga is going to be remarkable. There is still time to register! Join us in the Capitol Region during a critical moment for museums. Funding is under serious threat; it is a time for organizing, planning and activism. Never has the MANY motto of "One Voice" been more important. We truly are stronger together as we advocate for museums and our sister cultural institutions. 

Looking forward to Saratoga!

March 26, 2017   Dear Members, Friends, and Colleagues,   We are just a few days away from our 2017 annual conference: Museums Trifecta: Inspire, Experiment, Transform. We look forward to welcoming you to Saratoga Springs April 2-4 for a really exciting slate of programs and events. As I looked over the list of presenters and their presentations, it was challenging to choose which sessions to attend.
