What attendees are saying
I am processing the entire experience. I came away inspired, energized, head spinning with possibilities!
President & CEO
Western Reserve Historical Society
Words can’t describe everything I felt this weekend. I met so many incredible humans, heard incredible talks, and exchanged thoughts about the future of museums. As a first-time attendee, I felt welcome and #AAM2022 was a safe space for me to explore the field as a LatinX student-young professional. I am sure I will take all these lessons and apply them in my professional career. Thank you, AAM for letting me participate and share my experience.

New formats, great sessions, big ideas, old friends, new colleagues, museum visits, networking bonanza and just so absolutely amazing to be back at an American Alliance of Museums conference in-person! Check, check, check.

This was my first American Alliance of Museums conference and all I can say is “wow!”, what an experience.
Curator of Sustainability
Congratulations, kudos, and thank you for pulling together a wonderfully engaging Annual Meeting & Expo. I know it wasn’t easy, but as a member, I appreciated the effort and was impressed with all aspects. I had a great time, and definitely went away recharged and inspired to forge ahead.

I can say that attending the AAM’s meeting has been one of the professional highlights of the first half of the year. It was a space for reinvigorating and thoughtful conversation about crucial themes for the field. Now, I am working on setting time aside to process all the learnings and ideas discussed by museum colleagues and speakers. Congratulations to the entire AAM team for putting together such brilliant programming.

My first American Alliance of Museums annual conference has been incredible so far! I had the opportunity to present the Tuchny Story hybrid exhibition at #AAM2022, learned about innovations within the museum world, and have made some incredible connections and friends along the way; proud #latinahistorian
