Introducing TAM 2020 Virtual

Dear TAM Community,

Thank you for your patience during this unprecedented time. Our thoughts are with our community of museum professionals and students, as well as museum-serving businesses affected by the COVID 19 health crisis. Now is the time for our Association to come together to chart a new path forward. The TAM team has worked diligently over the past weeks to convert the content that speakers and experts from the museum industry developed for the TAM 2020 Annual Meeting -- originally scheduled for April 13-16 in Bryan College Station, to instead create a virtual experience that furthers our mission while in compliance with the country-wide quarantine. We are happy to announce that we are delivering our first virtual conference TAM 2020 Virtual on May 12th-15th. 
For those of you who have registered for the TAM 2020 Annual Meeting in Bryan College Station, we have circulated a survey regarding converting existing registrations to this new experience or requesting refunds that will close on Thursday, April 16th -- please contact [email protected] if you did not receive the survey. We hope to convert those investments into this new offering - we are still providing the important aspects of TAM 2020 including: keynotes by Randi Korn and Suse Anderson, a Development Symposium by Carl Hamm, key workshops, and a wide array of sessions designed for your functional role.  
You may view the schedule at a glance on TAM’s event page here and we will have a finalized detailed program schedule in the coming days. If you have not yet registered for the Annual Meeting but are interested in joining us online, then you will be given an opportunity to register for TAM 2020 Virtual beginning the week of April 20th. 
In the meantime, join us for weekly Hump Day Happy Hours with rotating Austin musicians. Schedule & registration here. We are grateful to you as our community and are exploring networking options to keep us together that include a small dose of entertainment! 
I thank you for your understanding and support in these challenging times,
Alex Freeman, Executive Director

Texas Association of Museums
