2021 Professional Assistance Fund and Registration

Professional Assistance Fund and Registration is now closed for the 2021 Annual Conference. If you submitted an application prior to the May 30th deadline, you will back from the Conference Committee by the afternoon of Tuesday, June 1, for registration details and any questions they may have in regards to your application. We are so thankful we were able to give FREE registration to #AAMG2021 to over 50 conference attendees this year! Thank you to our supportive sponsor, The Samuel H. Kress Foundation for making this possible!

2021 Conference Registration

To better serve our diverse membership we have invested in a fully integrated conference software platform and made changes to the annual conference registration fee structure. Instead of a flat rate based on membership, and to be responsive to DEAI goals and COVID-19 realities, we are now instituting a tiered salary-based system. This change maintains lower priced registration for AAMG members who may be part time, furloughed, or emerging museum professionals, while instituting incrementally higher registration tiers for those with full time employment.

AAMG is also offering a Professional Assistance Fund option this year for approved applicants to attend the conference for free.

Note: Current paid membership in AAMG is required to be eligible for this opportunity.

Professional Assistance Fund applications will be reviewed and support approved on a first-come, first-served basis. We will once again invite our family of academic museum members and supporters to help build the capacity of the Professional Assistance Fund to respond to increased demand.

Please note the deadline for consideration under this funding opportunity is Sunday, May 30, at midnight.

These applications will be reviewed on a bi-weekly basis and all applicants will receive a notification along with conference registration information once reviewed. If you have any questions, please reach out to aacademicmg[at]gmail[dot]com.

*Thank you to the Kress Foundation and the continued support of former AAMG Board Members who have helped to make this year’s conference registration rates as low as possible.

Support the Professional Assistance Fund – Support your Colleagues

All conference attendees registering at any level will have the option to contribute to the Professional Assistance Fund in addition to their registration fee. This fund will support your colleagues who cannot pay the full amount this year. Remaining funds will roll over to 2022.
