How does this organization make a difference?

Overview

Self-reported by organization

Museum Development Associates has offered almost 40 workshops on a variety of topics for those in small rural museums over the last five years. In partnership with Eastern New Mexico State University, we started an online professional certification program, Small Museum Pro!, in 2009. This program offers more in depth training for those working in and running small museums and for those who will never seek to earn a Museum Studies degree. We also offer hands-on assistance, training, and mentored implementation for client museums.
