February 18th!

Take action by February 18th for these two great small museum resources:

MAP YOUR WAY TO EXCELLENCE
“The MAP program has been the key to the success the Nichols House Museum has enjoyed over the past 10 years. The trustees, staff and executive director use the MAP reports extensively for institutional planning.” - Flavia Cigliano, Executive Director, Nichols House Museum

The Museum Assessment Program (MAP) is an affordable way to strengthen your museum and achieve excellence. Within a year your museum can conduct a self-study, consult with a museum professional and gain the tools to become a stronger institution. MAP is open to small and mid-sized museums of all types, including zoos, aquariums, public gardens, history museums, art museums and children’s museums. It is free for museums with operating expenses under $125,000. Apply for one of three MAP assessments: Organizational, Collections Stewardship, or Community Engagement.

Apply now at www.aam-us.org/map. The postmark deadline is Feb. 18th.

MAP staff are available to answer any questions at map@aam-us.org or 202-289-9118. The annual application is supported through a cooperative agreement between AAM and the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS).
