Our Mission

The mission of San Diego Emerging Museum Professionals (EMP and/or SDEMP) is to facilitate career growth through networking and professional development opportunities.

San Diego EMP welcomes members from all fields and is primarily composed of employees, volunteers, and students in their first ten years of a museum-related career. By offering regular meetups, workshops, tours, and other profession-related activities, San Diego EMP is a valuable resource for San Diego’s museum community.
