Given the difficulty of travel during the Covid-19 pandemic, the ASMD Board made the decision to convert the 2021 Directors Forum to a virtual format. We have postponed the meeting in Seattle to 2022 when we should be able to return to our in-person format.
The 2021 ASMD program committee (Vice Presidents Meg Beckel of the Canadian Museum of Nature and William Harris of Space Center Houston) have developed a program tailored to the times for ASMD’s first, and hopefully last, virtual Directors Forum. ASTC has agreed to host us on their zoom platform and provide technical assistance for this event. Presentations and discussions will feature impacts of Covid-19, strategies for dealing with the impacts, and planning for alternative revenue streams. A copy of the preliminary program is available here.
Images from our 2019 Directors in Rochester and Ithaca are are provided below. We hope that they provide you with a sense of the energy at our meetings that we hope to capture in our virtual event.
