The Small Museum Association held its annual conference on President’s Day weekend in College Park, Maryland and the ACSM was well represented. Our curator Abby Harting and Museum & Archives Committee members Sadie Somerville and Barbara Macklem all attended. And our former curator Robin MacDonald was the chair of the entire event. The theme this year honored the 100th anniversary of Women’s Suffrage.
The program was full of a diverse selection of seminars and workshops. Each day Abby, Sadie, and Barbara reviewed the choices and selected different programs to take full advantage of all the offerings. Programs included topics such as What is Digital Curation, Women in the Arts, Preserving What Inspires and much more. It was a great opportunity to hear about activities in other small museums and to learn new information and techniques. And while it was a great time to celebrate the passage for the 19th Amendment; it was even better to remember that in the Ardens we have had universal suffrage since our founding.
