Meet Your Museum

Welcome your MLA for #MeetYourMuseum Month!

 

The Alberta Museums Association is encouraging its Institutional Members to invite their MLAs to visit their museums during the month of July in order to showcase how museums are leading contributors to the social, cultural, and educational fabric of Alberta. The goal of #MeetYourMuseum Month is to increase the awareness with all government representatives of the importance and value of museums to their communities, and an in-person experience is an excellent way to communicate our sectors value!

 

Unsure of what to highlight?

  • Offer a special "behind the scenes" tour of an exhibit or collections area;
  • Provide them with a customized invitation to an existing event or opening;
  • Host a community BBQ.

 

We encourage you to reach out to your elected officials at their constituency office quickly as, although the Alberta Legislature is not in session during the month of July, summers can be busy and itineraries can fill up quickly. Invite your MPs and municipal officials to visit as well; the museum sector benefits with broad public engagement!

 

If you would like more information about #MeetYourMuseum Month, or additional ideas about how to get elected officials to visit your museum, please contact the AMA Advancement Lead at 780.424.2626 ext. 223 or at advancement@museums.ab.ca
