Seeking Session Proposals for the SCFM 2016 Conference

We’ll be Celebrating Carolina Culture at the next SCFM Annual Conference! From the varied physical landscapes to the unique range of cultural heritage, South Carolina is a destination state.

• How are you creating visitor experiences that reflect SC’s diverse cultures? 
• Do you have special programs highlighting the state’s unique features? 
• How does your museum promote heritage tourism? 
• Have you collaborated with area institutions to show the wide variety SC has to offer? 
• How do you celebrate South Carolina culture? 

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. 
• Sessions that include interactive or hands-on components are both fun and informative. 
• Some topics suggested on last year’s surveys: 
o Using museum collection databases 
o Security concerns 
o New and emerging professionals in the museum field 
o Career transitioning 
o Mentoring 
o Volunteer training 
o Strategies for varied staffing levels 
o Technology 
o Photography 

• Additional ideas for topics:
  o Budgeting and Fundraising
  o Disaster Preparedness
  o Curatorial Methods
