Museums Advocacy Day

The Florida Association of Museums is a proud supporter of Museums Advocacy Day.

A new Congress convenes in 2019, facing an enormous list of policy issues, including support for museums. Together as a field we've defeated several threats to eliminate federal agencies supporting museums, but we must keep making our case. Beyond federal funding, museums are also significantly impacted by tax reform, education policy, infrastructure legislation, and more.

But legislators do not know how museums are impacted if they don’t hear directly from you—the museums and people they represent.

Help make sure our [state/region/discipline] is represented in 2019.

Register Now for Museums Advocacy Day 2019!

Museums Advocacy Day is a unique opportunity to network with peers from your region, hear from federal agency and nonprofit leaders and build your own professional skills. The program includes two full days of issue briefings and advocacy training, networking with peers from your state and region, and visits to your legislators’ offices on Capitol Hill, scheduled by AAM. Gain advocacy strategies and techniques you can use on Capitol Hill, with your city council and state legislators, with local and regional funders, and to advocate for yourself throughout your career.

Will you be there to share your story with your legislators?

Museums Advocacy Day is inspiring, energizing and practical. Unite with others from the museum field as one voice to reaffirm our value, collective contributions, and aspirations. See Museums Advocacy Day success stories and book your room in the Museums Advocacy Day block to take advantage of the special discounted rate.

Use #MuseumsAdvocacy2019 to join the conversation on social media.
