Session & Workshop Proposal Form


Taking place October 5-8 in Pasadena, California, WMA's 2023 Annual Meeting will be filled with an array of opportunities to share ideas with colleagues and contribute to a fun and creative gathering of museum professionals.

With the theme of CONNECT, WMA 2023 is an opportunity to engage colleagues and explore ideas that will help define the future of museums and the diverse communities they serve. With your contribution, we can craft a unique gathering that adds more voices to the conversation of how museums CONNECT people.

If you'd like to submit a session or workshop proposal, please follow the two step-process below.



Please download and use our Session & Workshop Proposal Worksheet, as a guide for you individually, or with other members of your group, to work through the details of your proposed session or workshop, including format, learning outcomes, presenters, etc. This worksheet generally follows the format of the online submission form (step 2), making your experience filling out the submission form much easier and quicker to complete.

Need to get inspired? Please take a look at our 2022 Sessions or past programs to get inspired. If you attended WMA's 2022 Annual Meeting and had an exciting conversation or unique learning experience, you are encouraged to build off the momentum of those ideas for a 2023 session topic! If you submitted a proposal for WMA's 2022 Annual Meeting, you are welcome to submit the same or similar proposal, if you feel it is still relevant to the changing needs of museums professionals.
