June 2017 TAM Meeting: Friday, June 30th at 3:30pm
Please join us at TAM’s prospective new member museum, the Museum of Contemporary Art. (265 South Church Avenue Tucson, AZ, 85701)
Please encourage the staff of your institutions to join us – any prospective members to the Tucson Association of Museums will need your vote.
June’s meeting agenda will be focused on setting goals and refocusing TAM’s energy to better engage with our network of colleagues. Topics to be discussed include:
*Changing TAM’s monthly meetings to quarterly meetings with professional development opportunities
*Developing quarterly social meetings at local venues where TAM can connect emerging museum professionals with one another, as well as introducing them to mid-career and senior-level museum professionals interested in supporting their professional growth
*Enhancing TAM’s social media presence and website
*Engaging students at the University of Arizona; developing pathways to facilitate internship opportunities at TAM member institutions
Please come ready to share your ideas on the above topics as well as any other suggestions for increasing TAM’s presence in the museum community. We will also begin discussion for a TAM Scholarship Budget for 2018 in light of the AAM Annual Meeting & Museum Expo taking place in Phoenix (May 6 – 9, 2018).
Unless otherwise noted, 2017 Monthly Meetings will be held on the first Tuesday of the month, from 12:00pm – 1:30pm, at Fronimo’s Greek Café.
We want to hear from you! If the 2017 monthly meeting time and/or location prohibits your ability to attend monthly meetings, please let the TAM Board know. If you would like to suggest a local business for our monthly meetings (central location, free parking, ample meeting space) we would love to hear your suggestions.
