Session #1: Skeletons in the Closet: How to Tackle the Biggest Collections Challenges Head On

Miranda Peters, Collections Manager, Fort Ticonderoga
Margaret Staudter, Registrar, Fort Ticonderoga

Every museum has a corner, closet, or even room where “difficult” collections have accumulated. These are the overwhelming areas where you don’t know where to begin. Join the Fort Ticonderoga staff to discuss past museum practices, unfit storage spaces, documentation, and how to re-house over 23,000 objects in 12 months.

Session #2: Reclaiming our Time: Making History Relevant by Connecting Slavery and Racism in Modern America

Micah Blumenthal, Storyteller/Co-Workshop Leader, TMI Project
Kara Gaffken, Director of Public Programming, Historic Huguenot Street

Discover how three organizations came together to shed light on the connection between slavery in America and the continued racism and discrimination in American society. We will divulge how we turned an immersive, overnight experience in a slave cellar into five, first-person monologues; includes live performance

Session #3: Members? Donors? I Just Need People to Support My Mission

Ken Meifert, VP, Sponsorship & Development, National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum

Members? Donors? Which are better? It all depends… In the end, it is most important to have a strong foundation of support for your mission. Explore and share ideas for engaging your constituents as members or donors, the differences in motivations for participants, and how a membership program can support a strong donor program.
