The board of the Nevada Museums Association welcomes you to the 2013 Annual Conference, centered in the rich cultural and educational traditions of Reno and Sparks. Special thanks go to the award-winning National Automobile Museum for stepping up and graciously hosting the conference. The museum, under the leadership of Jackie Frady, has long supported NMA and our statewide museum community. A full year of preparations by the program committee has culminated in a first-rate selection of opportunities sure to enhance learning and inspiration. Museums are moving out of the recession slow-down and accelerating into a promising future. The conference theme acknowledges this movement, ?Shift into High Gear: Museums on the Open Road to Recovery.? Program goals were established to assist recovery and growth: ? Present a professional conference exemplifying high standards and full content ? Provide professional development for those who can no longer afford regional and national conferences ? Serve the interests of small to large museums ? Reach out to beginning museum workers and seasoned professionals ? Offer a retreat for restoration, inspiration, and celebration of our profession ? Maintain affordability to encourage broad participation Such an event wouldn?t be possible without the contributions of many organizations, presenters, and volunteers. Thank you Nevada museums and museum lovers for supporting the conference and your state museum association. Museums need NMA more than ever. The association is working hard to fill this need. Together, we can lift NMA to a high level of training, networking, and advocacy.
