Student Affairs Committee 

What does the Student Affairs Committee Do?

The purpose of the Student Affairs Committee is to involve students in the museum profession. The committee provides students with the opportunity to interact with professionals in the North Carolina Museums Council through meetings and conferences.

Why should a student join NCMC?

Student members receive:

  • NCMC newsletter, which includes  job and internship listings

  • 50% discount to the annual NCMC conference

  • Discounts on professional development workshops

  • Mentorship opportunities

The best reason for a student to be a member of the North Carolina Museums Council is the annual conference. Here you have many opportunities to network with members of your field; pursue diverse professional development opportunities; and attend insightful workshops, panels, and discussions. The many museum professionals at the conference will be a valuable resource to you as you shape your career.

Even if you are not currently a member, you may apply for the Student Memorial Award to attend the conference for free. The award winner, and up to three additional scholarship winners, will receive a free one-year NCMC student membership.
