Annual Meeting 2019

El Paso, Texas

April 2nd - 5th

Inspired Places Inspiring People

The community in which the museum lives defines its mission, values, and work.  As professionals, we want our museums to be relevant, well attended, and meaningful for those who visit.  Creating that meaningful place takes more than offering what we believe will resonate with the community.  It takes the museum being an integral part of that community and a willingness to be responsive and adapt.

People, history, culture, and geographic locale all uniquely define a place.  In Texas, our geographic range, cultural influences, and cross-cultural history creates a landscape of museums that are both vastly different from each other and yet share the same commitment – to reflect the community in which they are a part.

El Paso is the largest US/Mexico border community with an active and vibrant bi-national population.  Often described as 3 states (Texas, New Mexico, Chihuahua, MX); 2 countries; 1 region, the Borderplex is rich with art, history, and cultural institutions that will offer a unique backdrop to explore how museums may be inspired by place and inspire people.

The Annual Meeting sessions, luncheons, and exhibit hall will be located at the El Paso Convention Center.
