Kate Bennett and Dean Briere will host the 2019 ASMD Directors Forum in Rochester and Ithaca, New York on February 4-6, with travel days on February 3 and 7. The Rochester Museum & Science Center will serve as the base of operations, and we are negotiating a room block with a nearby Rochester hotel. The meeting will feature a day trip to Ithaca to explore Sciencenter and other museums and science institutions. The program committee, led by ASMD Vice Presidents Julie Stein and Dennis Kois, is developing an invigorating program that will feature the Directors’ Round Table, frank dialog on hot topics, presentations by thought leaders, insights from our host museums and their Directors, behind-the-scenes exploration of other local museums and science institutions with members of their leadership teams, and ample time to brainstorm about shared issues and concerns with your colleagues.
Images from our 2018 Directors in Houston are provided below. We hope that you will attend the 2019 Directors Forum.
