Dear member,

This year marks the 30th anniversary for MAC's Annual Conference. The first conference took place in 1989 in Dominica and provided a unique opportunity for Caribbean museum professionals to meet and exchange knowledge, skills, and experiences. We will be celebrating this anniversary by working towards an exceptional conference which will take place in Martinique in November 2019. This letter contains the call for papers (deadline May 1st). In addition, MAC was active in the first quarter of 2019 in a few important international meetings, which you can read about below. Finally, we encourage our members to participate in ICOM's International Museum Day.
