In 2018, federal funding for museums will continue to be a major issue and museums could also be significantly impacted by tax reform, education policy, infrastructure legislation, and more. But legislators do not know how public policy impacts museums and the citizens they serve if they don’t hear it from you—their constituent. Help make sure museums are at the table not on the table in 2018.
Museums Advocacy Day is a critical chance to make a unified case to Congress about the value of museums, and a unique opportunity to invest in yourself and build your own advocacy skills. The American Alliance of Museums provides policy briefings and schedules your meetings on Capitol Hill.
Will you be there to share your museum story with your legislators?
And book your room in the Museums Advocacy Day block to take advantage of the special discounted rate.
Use #MuseumsAdvocacy2018 to join the conversation on social media.
A special note for AAMG Members: AAM Advocacy Day is a wonderful way to introduce students to issues affecting museums today and how to approach lawmakers and their official staff. We encourage students to participate!
Also, AAMG will arrange a members’ meet-up Monday evening, Feb. 26th, immediately after the first day’s training session @ Churchkey: 1337 14th Street, NW – just two blocks from the conference hotel (“Best Beer Bar in the City” – Washington Post).
