Curators PAG Lunch
Join us at the Curators’ PAG lunch for a discussion about unclaimed and abandoned property in museum collections. How has abandoned property legislation affected your museum’s process for deaccessioning? What is the best course of action for institutions in states that do not have abandoned property laws? Share your experiences, questions, and concerns, and hear specific examples from colleagues who have successfully navigated the world of abandoned property. If you would like to make a brief presentation on this topic during the PAG lunch, please contact Darren Brown at dbrown@beverlyhistory.org or Heather Leavell at hleavell@dallin.org.

Membership, Development, Public Relations, and Marketing PAG Lunch
Join the new co-chairs and your museum colleagues for an informal lunch to discuss how this NEMA PAG can best meet your professional development needs. Brainstorm future workshop topics, events, and online resources; help determine if there’s interest in establishing a dedicated PAG for Development and one for Public Relations & Marketing; and provide feedback on workshop locations, format, and more!
Co-Chairs: Cynthia G. Mackey, Vice President, Marketing and External Affairs, Museum of Science, MA; Christi Razzi, Director of Institutional Giving, Portland Museum of Art
