museum professionals and supports the professional development WMA provides to the museum field.
With the continued impact of the global pandemic and the spread of COVID-19, WMA is postponing the 2020 Annual Meeting, which had been scheduled for Portland, Oregon, from October 8th-11th. This decision was made in partnership with the Oregon Museums Association, and we are actively planning a return to Portland in a future year.
Our proactive decision to postpone is motivated by the understanding that in the coming months our museums will be working hard to navigate our rapidly changing environment and serving their communities. We are able to make this choice from a place of financial strength that your continued support has helped build. So, thank you for being in the WMA Community—we are stronger because of you. For now, though, we encourage you to focus on yourself, your organizations, and your community.
Like many of your organizations, WMA is embracing these changes as an opportunity to grow in new directions. As we all shift to new realities, WMA would like to know how we can best serve you—the WMA Community. While we will not be gathering in person this year, through the summer and fall we will be sharing new resources and will continue to be a platform for your ideas. As we create new digital exchanges, please contact us with your stories, ideas, and interests. We want to ensure you are the best YOU can be. Tell us how we can help.
While we are not gathering this year, you can reach the WMA Community by advertising on our website and in the eWestmuse Monthly Newsletter!

The opportunity to support an organization that impacts the museum industry dovetails with our own values of curiosity, innovation, and collaboration. While we appreciate the attention and visibility, we rely on the friends, partners, and colleagues at WMA for our continued education and growth.”
