Catch Us at the Oklahoma Museums Association Conference


Are you attending the Oklahoma Museums Association Conference this September?

M-AAA is presenting a Preconference Workshop on Wednesday, September 21 from 10:00 a.m.–4:00 p.m.: Assessing Your Diamond By Addressing the ‘Four C’s’ (Creativity, Clarity, Communication, and Commitment)

How can your institution exercise more creativity to resolve challenging issues? How can your institution set more clear objectives to refine and shape its programs better? How could your museum improve getting its message through more effectively inside and outside the museum? How can you impact the commitment your museum makes to your community and building and sustaining audiences?

Attend this OMA preconference session to hear case study examples from OMA peers that reflect how each of their institutions has addressed one or more of the “Four C’s” (creativity, clarity, communication, and commitment) to enhance their work and organization. Participants will work together in small peer groups to discuss and address a real and future challenge at their institutions and think of ways to consider how using creativity, seeking clarity, improving communication, or emphasizing commitment might impact change.

This preconference session, presented by Mid-America Arts Alliance and in collaboration with the Woolaroc Museum and the Oklahoma Museums Association, requires advance registration as space is limited. The session includes a box lunch. For constituents traveling more than 100 miles to attend this session, travel reimbursement grants of up to $150 are available for hotel and transportation.
