Roundtable Sessions

2020 MAA Spring Conference

Museum Collaborations: Synergies at Work

Monday, March 23, 2020
10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Pueblo Grande Museum
4619 E Washington Street
Phoenix AZ

The session format for the 2020 Spring Conference are 75 minute roundtables at which several presenters speak for 10 to 15 minutes, followed by group discussion.  A moderator will work with the presenters to ensure there are common themes and questions to discuss, as well as  also introduce the session topic and keep the conversation going.  This format does not include PowerPoint presentations, but we are encouraging either handouts or material that can be posted on the MAA website in advance of the Conference.

We are still confirming presenters and setting the final schedule.   If you are interested in sharing information about your museum at any of these roundtables, please feel free to contact Janice Klein, MAA Executive Director at   Information on this page will be updated regularly.
