Shameless Plug: AAM MAP Program
I don't often do shameless plugs on this blog, but AAM's Museum Assessment Program (MAP) is such a good thing that it merited a post all of its own. MAP is an affordable way to strengthen your museum and achieve excellence. Within a year you get to conduct a self-study, consult with a museum professional and gain the tools to become a stronger institution. The program is open to small and mid-sized museums of all types, including zoos, aquariums, public gardens, history museums, art museums and children's museums. You can apply for one of three MAP assessments: Organizational, Collections Stewardship, or Community Engagement. If you want to do one this year, then you'd better get your skates on - the deadline for proposals is Feb 18. Click here to apply - and if you have any questions, MAP staff will be only too happy to answer them by phone (202-289-9118) or email (firstname.lastname@example.org). What are you waiting for?
