The conference will take place at the Radisson Hotel Lansing at the Capitol, in downtown Lansing, with tours and receptions offsite.
Each year, hundreds of museum professionals and volunteers from both peninsulas gather at the MMA Annual Conference to network and share valuable information about museums. Conference support by businesses, institutions, and individuals allows us to keep conference registration low, provide meals during the conference to support a collegial conference environment, and helps finance Michigan Museums Association's central office.
The conference will take place in Lansing at the Radisson Hotel Lansing at the Capitol October 17-19. We expect 175-200 staff, volunteers, and board members from museums throughout the state to participate in the conference.
Promote your organization, service or product directly to the Michigan museum and cultural community at the 2017 Michigan Museums Association Conference.
