Save the Date: November 15 – 18, 2017 If you are in a tourism - or education- related field such as museums, tour operator, Chamber of Commerce, Libraries, Conference Planner, Educator, or Parks employee, the New Mexico Association of Museums Annual Conference in historic Los Alamos, New Mexico is for you! Nothing in human experience is more exciting than seeing or learning something for the first time. This year’s conference theme is “New Mexico museums: Where Discoveries Happen!” See how the process of discovery is transforming New Mexico museums, science centers and historic sites by igniting curiosity, inspiring creativity, and instilling a spirit of innovation. Learn how new strategies and technologies are leading visitors of every age and background on exciting journeys of exploration and discovery. Join in networking with your fellow professionals in the museum and tourism industry with a common goal of promoting New Mexico as an educational destination. Highlights will be Superintendent Kris Kirby as the Conference’s keynote speaker, sharing with you her perspective on how the NPS is interpreting this newest National Historic Park that is not owned by them; learn how to create a great looking, highly functional tour app with very limited technical and financial resources; discover the many advantages of institutional collaborations and see how you can partner with neighboring institutions reaping the benefits of crossing that often-invisible line between states and countries.
