The recent past has seen unprecedented challenges, disruptions, and changes in the world-at-large and for our field. Museums have had to stay nimble and embrace flexibility to adapt to ever-changing situations.

So, what comes next?

When we reflect on how museums responded in the past few years, how can we reconcile our learned experiences and apply them to future unknown disruptions? What role do museums have as places of healing? How has the past two years changed your institution? Your outreach? Your internal systems? How do we move forward with equity in our organizations? What are museums’ roles in our communities?

Join us in Cincinnati, April 2-4 as we explore these topics and more at the 2022 Ohio Museums Association’s Annual Conference: Adaptability & Flexibility: Reflecting for the Future.

OMA is looking for innovative and engaging sessions that will create an interactive experience for our conference attendees.

Send in a proposal for a session that you would like to attend! 

Submit your session proposal now for the 2022 annual conference of the Ohio Museums Association as we explore best practices and innovative ideas in Ohio museums. We're seeking session proposals that will foster dynamic conversations around:

  • Budgeting for uncertainty – planning for unknown futures
