It’s official - the Western Museums Association’s 2011 Annual Meeting will be an international event. The WMA will be joined by the Hawai’i Museums Association and Pacific Islands Museums Association in co-hosting WMA’s 2011 Annual Meeting, September 23-26, 2011. This will be a unique opportunity for WMA and fellow museum professionals to meet and exchange ideas and best practices with colleagues near and far, and to see Hawai‘i in a whole different light!
This year's annual meeting will include twelve pre-conference workshops, more than 60 sessions including onsite/insight sessions at great venues in Honolulu, a special Library track organized by ATALM, and evening events at the Honolulu Academy of Arts, Iolani Palace, Shangri La, Bishop Museum and many more.
The 2011 WMA Annual Meeting is being held two months prior to the convening of the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Summit in Honolulu, which brings together the leaders of the 21 economies in the Asia – Pacific region. The WMA is taking advantage of this exceptional occasion to gather the diverse museum community and their associations from throughout this important and expansive geographic area to meet face to face, network, and foster greater collaboration across national borders.
WMA would like to thank the following organizations:
Hawai'i Convention Center / SMG
Hawai'i Museums Association
Hawai'i Tourism Authority
