If the thought of advocating every day sounds exhausting, this session will help you approach it from a different angle. At its core, successful advocacy is simply articulating throughout the year why your museum adds value to your community. We will share resources and tools available from state museum associations to help museums of any size advocate for themselves and the field as a whole. All of us have a part in advocating for museums.
