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: New World of Corporate Membership and Sponsorship

Becky Wehle, President & CEO, Genesee Country Village & Museum

The corporate giving landscape has changed in recent years as large companies (and their big gifts) disappear and smaller companies are looking for a stronger return on their investment. Join development staff, a fundraising consultant, and a corporate representative to exchange ideas about identifying, cultivating, and stewarding corporations for membership and sponsorship.

Session #3: Humanities New York Workshop: How to Facilitate Community Conversations 

Michael Washburn, Director of Programs, Humanities New York


All workshop attendees are invited to MANY's Souther Tier Meet Up following at 4:30.
