"I have never seen a conference that is more relevant, super progressive, and has such diverse programming on many levels!  It is EXCELLENT."

- Susan Holland, Executive Director of Historic Ithaca


Dear MANY members and friends,

Colleagues on our Rochester planning and proposal review committees have helped us bring together play and learning to create a unique 2018 conference experience. Change is coming to New York’s museums in our collections and our visitors, the tools and technologies we use, as well as the types of exhibitions and programs we offer. We are embracing New Americans, learning how to tell and listen to difficult stories, and creating partnerships that help us make room for difference. Come to Rochester and expect change!  

Early Bird Registration will be open until February 16, 2018. Register today!

I hope to see you in Rochester!

Erika Sanger
Executive Director
