MANY meet Ups:

Converse, Learn, Connect

Each year, MANY hosts Meet Ups in each of the 10 Economic Development Regions. These Meet Ups bring together members, guests, and colleagues to network, converse, participate in workshops, and learn about professional development opportunities and advocacy initiatives. 

Fall 2017 Meet Ups:

In partnership with Humanities New York and 11 host sites, MANY lead conversations about, “What Comes Next,” with over 290 museum professionals.

From September to November, MANY traveled from Buffalo to Long Island, stopping in each of the 10 Economic Development Regions. This year, MANY expanded the Meet Up programming to include special tours, demonstrations and workshops.

We want to thank our 2017 Meet Up Sponsors for supporting these professional development and networking opportunities for our members and colleagues; Humanities New York, Hadley Exhibits, ADWorkshop, OnCell, and the Albany County Convention and Visitor's Bureau.
