museums and museum professionals to share knowledge and expertise"

MAC 2020 AGM UPDATE

May 2, 2020

MAC 2020 AGM GOES VIRTUAL
Out of abundance of caution, MAC’s co-convening with the AAAM conference will not take place this August as planned.  The health of our members, colleagues and annual conference delegates is extremely important to us and both organizations agreed that this course of action provided the safest measure for all. 

MAC will host our 2020 Annual General Meeting virtually this November, where plans for the 2021 conference will be shared. Please stay tuned for the date and the program.

2020 MAC Travel Fellowship Program Cancelled
MAC will not offer travel scholarships in 2020. The travel program has been closed. 


ANNOUNCEMENT OF COVID-19 WEBINAR SERIES

MAC is keenly aware of our collective need to share information, resources and responses related to the impact of COVID-19 on the Caribbean museum sector.  To that end, we will be developing a series of virtual webinars with a variety of subject area professionals to facilitate these conversations.

Members and colleagues will also find the following resources, developed by other organizations useful:
