Join us for the August #OHMuseumChat!

The Ohio Museums Association (@OhioMuseums)  is proud to present our August #‎OHMuseumChat - Thursday, August 20 at noon on Twitter!

This month, our topic is the "New Landscape of Working with Volunteers."

Joining us will be Annie Talmadge with the AmeriCorps Local History Program, and currently based at the Hancock Historical Museum @hancockhistoric, and museum professionals from across the state!

Haven't participated in one of our #OHMuseumChat's before? No problem! It's easy to join the conversation!

So what exactly is a twitter chat?

A twitter chat is a live event focused around a single conversation hashtag - in our case, #OHMuseumChat. Our chat will use twitter as a means to connect museum professionals across Ohio (and perhaps, beyond!) for a relaxed and informal discussion on whatever our monthly topic is - which, for August is the "New Landscape of Working with Volunteers."

Participating is easy!

All you need to do to participate in the #OHMuseumChat is log on to twitter by noon on Thursday, August 20 and search #OHMuseumChat. Then, you can join the conversation by adding #OHMuseumChat to your tweets! It's that simple!

As this month's chat is focused on how museums are adapting their volunteer program amidst social distancing, we encourage you to bring your questions and ideas! Take advantage of the expertise and experience of your peers, and learn more about this topic. 

Be sure to follow OMA on twitter - @OhioMuseums for all the latest updates from the Ohio Museums Association, and don't forget to follow #OHMuseumChat for the full August discussion as it happens.

Bring your ideas, questions and best practices for a lively and inspiring conversation with colleagues from across the state to the #OHMuseumChat, Thursday, August 20 at noon. We hope you can join us!
