Happy Fall everyone! As we move towards the end of this election cycle, I was reminded how fortunate that we truly are that we are part of the greatest experiment in democracy and that even though it may not turn out the way that you want the election to, I feel that we still can reach out to one another to find that common ground that makes the process the best in the world. I hope that if you have not already voted that you will do so on Tuesday.
This is a truly exciting time for NCMC! We are wrapping up our great Brown Bag Lunch Series, thank you to Adrienne Nirdé and Felica Ingram for an amazing job, where we presented informative talks on a variety of subjects.
We also have a great committee that is already hard at work in planning the 2021 NCMC Conference, March 22-24. Although our next conference will be all virtual, we are planning opportunities for you to connect and grow. This year’s theme, “Shifting Roles: Finding a New Path” promises to be one of the most educational conferences in our recent history. Do you have an idea for our next conference? Then please submit your ideas now at http://www.ncmuseums.org/2021-Annual-Meeting-Session-Proposals. We would love to hear your ideas! The deadline for submission is Friday, November 20, 2020.
Our next newsletter will not be out until after the new year so with that, I hope that you have a wonderful holiday season with your friends and family. I know it is easy to get lost in everything that is happening. Take the time to ask your friends, family members and colleagues, “How are you?” because isn’t that one of the reasons for the holidays? Please stay well, safe and healthy!
-Yours in museums!
