Seeking Session Proposals for the SCFM 2015 Conference

This year’s conference will focus on how our museums are moving forward and expanding through new construction, technology, programs and partnerships.

• What new projects are you using at your museum to successfully move into the future? 
• How have you adapted programs to engage visitors?
• How are you reaching new audiences through technology and social media?
• Have you had to problem-solve or address policies due to the changing museum?
• How has your museum changed in the last 5 years? 10 years?

Tips and Ideas for Presenters: 

• It’s great to share about specific projects that your museum is working on! Take your session up a notch by including take-away concepts and applicable suggestions.

  o Technology and social media o How to incorporate big ideas at small museums
  o Collaborations
