      Symposium 2011

       

      Museum Standards: Evolution or Revolution?

       

      April 9, 2011

      Eastern Illinois University, Charleston, Illinois

       

      How can cultural institutions meet minimum standards with little money and even less staff? Technology, evolving state education mandates, and shrinking budgets are making it increasingly difficult for museums and cultural institutions to keep up with changing standards and best practices. Programs such as AAM’s Museum Assessment Program and AASLH’s Standards and Excellence Program for History Organizations (StEPS) are programs available to museums to aid in laying the groundwork to meet these standards. We are seeking presentation proposals that illustrate how your institution has found creative ways to meet these challenges head-on and succeed. Suggested presentation themes include:

      ·                     Digitization Standards

      ·                     Meeting State Education Curriculum Requirements

      ·                     Museum Environment and Exhibit Standards

      ·                     Meeting Standards on a Limited Budget

      ·                     Accounting Standards for Museums

       

      If you are interested in submitting a proposal, please complete the Presentation Submission Form and return it to Stephanie Gaub by mail or e-mail no later than October 31, 2010. Submitters will be notified by November 15, 2011 if their presentation has been accepted.

       

      If you have any questions, please contact Stephanie Gaub at Stephanie.gaub@... or 407-836-8587.
