Uniting State and National Associations around a Common Purpose
The Situation:
The museum field, consisting of over 18,000 museums across the United States, plays important cultural, educational, social and economic roles in cities and communities across the country. Individual museums are supported by an array of national, regional, and state organizations, all interested in ensuring that museums have the capacity to fulfill their mission. While national and regional organizations have become more closely aligned in recent years, there has continued to be great variation in the work and capacity of the state museum associations.
