Alexander Haas at AAM Annual Meeting in Atlanta

The 2015 American Alliance of Museum’s Annual Meeting and MuseumExpo will take place in our own backyard: Atlanta, GA. AAM’s The Social Value of Museums: Inspiring Change conference will take place April 26-29.

The Alexander Haas Museum Services partner team will moderate two conference sessions in Atlanta:

Sunday, April 27 8:30 AM
Small and Not-So-Small Museums, All with Big Ideas: Alexander Haas Partner Paul Johnson will lead a discussion with the leaders of two museums that are smaller in size and big on vision for their museums. Joining Paul are Karen Brosius, Executive Director of Columbia Museum of Art, Columbia SC; Dane Pollei, Director and Chief Curator, Mabee-Gerrer Museum of Art, Shawnee, OK, and Karyn Flynn, CEO and Executive Director, Bay Area Discovery Museum, Sausalito, CA.

Wednesday, April 29 10:45 AM
How an All-Volunteer Band Raised $8-Million During the Recession: Alexander Haas Partner Sandra Kidd will introduce the remarkable story of how a determined group of volunteers put together a public-private partnership that has created not one but two new venues to celebrate the music and culture of the Carolina Piedmont. She will be joined by volunteer leaders J.T. Scruggs, Earl Scruggs Center; Martha “Brownie” Plaster, founder and past chair of Destination Cleveland County; and Emily Epley, Executive Director of the Earl Scruggs Center for Music and Stories from the American South.
