2020's Annual Conference for the New Mexico Association of Museums, will be different and global this year!

This year’s conference theme Future-Proofing Museums & New Realities will be held November 4-6, 2020 and we invite you as a potential presenter, partner, or attendee for this innovative event. Our 2020 focus is providing conference attendees skills and methods to manage our new reality in the age of COVID-19 including the development of digital storytelling, virtual exhibits, and creative means of distanced audience engagement.

Register for the Conference

Our sessions, workshops, and special events this year will all be hosted online and streamed. We cordially invite you to submit proposals for sessions or workshops that you believe would be of interest to our diverse community.  We also welcome submissions of any multimedia - videos, virtual tours, graphics, audio, posters - that will be shared through our conference website. Panel discussions and Q&A sessions can have up to 10 presenters simultaneously live on video - we will keep these important conversations happening, even at a distance.
