Several of our staff members left today or yesterday to attend the American Association of Museums (AAM) annual meeting in Philadelphia, one of the most important of professional conferences to the field. This year's annual meeting has a blog and some other associated social media, and its theme is "The Museum Experiment," explained at this link. Keynote speakers are Walter Isaacson, president and CEO of the Aspen Institute, and Malcolm Gladwell, author of several New York Times nonfiction bestsellers, including "Blink" and "The Tipping Point." We're excited to hear what our staff members bring back, as well as what they contribute through their attendance.
