Call for Conference Program Committee Members

Note: This call has now closed.

Are you passionate about the museum sector in Alberta, creating exciting learning opportunities, and connecting with your peers? The Alberta Museums Association (AMA) is looking for volunteers to join our 2021 Conference Program Committee!

Members of the Program Committee for our 50th Anniversary Conference Series will review session proposals, engage in discussion about Conference content, and help shape both the live program and additional content released before and after each event.

This year's Program Committee will be involved in all four events in the Conference Series. The time commitment is approximately two to four hours of proposal review and two hours of committee discussion ahead of each event. Virtual committee meetings will be held in January, April, July, and September. Program Committee members receive complimentary registration to Conference and are thanked during the event.

The AMA is committed to fostering an equitable, diverse, and inclusive environment for our learning programs. We actively encourage applications from underrepresented groups, including but not limited to Indigenous peoples, members of visible minority groups, persons with disabilities, and persons of any sexual orientation or gender identity and expression. The AMA also strives to ensure the Program Committee represents the size and geographic location of our members, as well as to involve emerging professionals to ensure perspectives from individuals at all stages of career development are reflected.

If you are interested in participating, please email Ben Fast, Program Lead, at learning@museums.ab.ca with a copy of your resumé, and your response (100 words maximum) to this question: "Why would you make a good member of the 2021 Conference Program Committee?"

 

Applications will be accepted until December 11, 2020.
