NI Museums Council Annual General Meeting & Museum Forum (Online only, through Microsoft Teams)
We are providing our members with advance notice of this years’ Annual General Meeting and Museum Forum, which will be held online through Microsoft Teams. The decision to host the event online was taken in response to feedback from the sector, relating in particular to ongoing workforce pressures that limit staff capacity to travel and attend in-person meetings. We hope that the online provision will encourage broader attendance and participation in this years’ AGM and Museum Forum.
Whilst we will continue to listen to our members, and tailor our provision to meet your needs, we are keen to retain the flexibility of reverting back to in-person meetings in future years. In fact, we have already begun planning for the 2024 meeting, which will be in person, and will focus on advocacy and research following the much anticipated completion of the first Museum Trends Survey in eight years.
We are excited to host a diverse range of speakers and presentations at this years’ Museum Forum, which will proceed immediately following the AGM, and ask that you ringfence the date and time in your calendar now to ensure that you will benefit from the experience and insights of a diverse panel of speakers. We will release further details about the Museum Forum agenda in due course.
