WMA 2014 Registration is Now Open!


The Western Museums Association (WMA) is excited to announce the opening of Registration for the 2014 Annual Meeting in Las Vegas! During WMA’s 79th convening, Las Vegas’ museums will be illuminated as we learn new skill sets and grow professionally by exchanging with our museum colleagues. Las Vegas is a place that is known for rebirth, and continues to provide new experiences. One thing is certain, though, you can always Expect the Unexpected.

The Preliminary Program is now available! View it now!


Learning Sessions: Over 40 sessions from six interdisciplinary tracks!

Focused Workshops: 10 Pre-Conference Workshops on topics ranging from gallery lighting and futures thinking, to museum store revenue and collection needs.

Fabulous Events: Special events at Las Vegas museums including, The Mob Museum, the National Atomic Testing Museum, the Neon Museum, and the Springs Preserve.

Special Tours: Four wonderful tours highlighting the diversity of southern Nevada. Locations include the Hoover Dam, Michael Heizer’s Double Negative, Clark County Museum, Lost City Museum, Wetlands Park, and two studios that are becoming house museums.

Entertaining Keynote: Mark Hall-Patton, a 35-year museum veteran, will regale attendees with stories of being the visiting expert on the History Channel’s Pawn Stars and American Restoration, and the Travel Channel's Mysteries and the Museum.

Afternoon at the Springs Preserve: On the final afternoon, we are moving the 2014 Annual Meeting to the one-of-a-kind Springs Preserve for sessions, special tours, visiting the galleries, and the second installment of WestMusings.
