The Mid-Atlantic Association of Museums (MAAM) is a

Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, and Washington, D.C.

Registration is now open for the 2006 MAAM Annual Meeting - Bridging Communities in Brooklyn, NY. This is their 60th anniversary and it is sure to be a great learning opportunity and a lot of fun for the participants. I strongly urge those of you associated with small museums to consider attending this conference. it is a comfortable place to enjoy what is happening in the broader world of museums, meet new colleagues and enjoy yourself. many of the participants represent smaller museums.
