Stipends Available for WMA Conference

Interested in attending the 2018 Western Museums Association conference? We can help!

WMA’s annual conference—happening this year October 21–24 in Tacoma—is an excellent opportunity for those involved with the museum industry to exchange ideas, network with colleagues, and learn from each other by attending valuable sessions. This year’s conference theme is “INSPIRE”—the focus is on ways museums inspire action, change, and unity.

We’re excited to offer $400 stipends to King County residents who are a staff member, volunteer, or board member of a heritage organization also located in King County. The stipends may be used for conference registration, travel, and lodging costs.

To apply, please submit your resume detailing your commitment to action, change, and unity within King County heritage museums or organizations as an email attachment to Chieko Phillips at no later than Friday, July 13, 2018 by 11:59 pm PDT. We’ll notify you by August 1, 2018. Checks will be presented to awardees at the conference.
