The Museum Association of New York (MANY), the only statewide organization that works as both a hub for the state’s museum community and a powerful voice for the advancement of art, history, science and children’s museums, as well as zoos, botanical gardens and other cultural organizations, announced today an all-new Museum Institute at Great Camp Sagamore in Raquette Lake, NY.
Taking place September 21-24, this year’s Museum Institute features new reduced rates and a theme that focuses on advocacy. The group of presenters on hand will provide knowledge about what works, and what doesn’t, when it comes to advocating for your institution, from the CFA process to meeting with local, state and federal policy makers. The application deadline has been extended to August 29th.
Presenters will include:
Assemblyman Jack McEneny (retired)
Ember Farber, Assistant Director for Advocacy Engagement, The American Association of Museums (AAM)
Paul Bray, ESQ, former Director of the Legislative Bill Drafting Commission
James Larson, Legislative Relations Specialist, NYS Union of Teachers (NYSUT)
