December 5: Making Your NetWORK: Stewarding Relationships for Mutual Success

Event_Images_-_1920px_x_1080px_(8) (1).png

December 5 | 6 – 8 PM | New Americans Museum

The expression “it’s not what you know, but who you know,” is only one part of the networking equation.

Stewarding professional relationships requires identifying mutually beneficial connections, outreach and cultivation. The good news is these are all things that can be learned. Our panelists will discuss strategies for building rapport, maintaining relationships and how to ask for support while expanding relationships with stakeholders invested in you.

In other words, how to make your netWORK!

We will hear from 3 incredible panelists:

  • Jeremy Bloom, Donor Relations Manager, ACLU
  • Rebecca Handelsman, Senior Director of Communications, San Diego National History Museum
  • Jill Hammons, Membership Director, USS Midway Museum

Tickets are free with a suggested donation up to $10. Space is limited. Register today!

Parking: The New American Museums is located in Liberty Station, surrounded by plenty of street and lot parking. See map

RSVP – Get your tickets here!

 See you there for our last event of 2017!

September 13: Craft (Wine) & Conversation: Keeping Up in a Changing Field

Event_Images_-_1920px_x_1080px.png
September 13| 5:30 – 7:30 PM | Negociant Winery

Museum folks are working from within their organizations to positively alter the historical spaces museums inhabit, from encouraging diverse hiring practices and more equitable pay, to creating more accessible programming and reaching out to work directly with communities. But how can we insure that we are in sustainable positions to continue this important work?

Join us at our September Craft (wine) & Conversation night to discuss how to keep up in a changing field. Through a roundtable-style discussion moderated by Emerging Museum Professional, Dia Bassett, guests will have the opportunity to share their views on this subject. We complied a list of articles to read to learn a little more about the subject matter, check them out below. Reading is encouraged but not required!

$5 Suggested Donation (Support EMP with a minimum donation that will help our volunteer-run organization to continue to offer free or low-cost professional development and networking opportunities for museum professionals at all levels.)
