2022 Content Advisory Committee

2022 Content Advisory Committee

The 2022 AAM Annual Meeting & MuseumExpo Content Advisory Committee (CAC) is a diverse group of subject matter experts recommended to serve on the CAC for their extensive knowledge and understanding of the needs of the field. The CAC’s goal is to review, grade, and select proposals that are in line with the four focus areas of the 2022 Annual Meeting: Museums in Society, Financial Wellness, Innovation, and Organizational Culture.

CAC members were recommended by AAM members, volunteers, staff, representatives of the Boston Local Host Committee, previous National Program Committee members, and AAM Professional Networks.


The CAC evaluates content for the Annual Meeting by reviewing proposal submissions through a “blind” peer-review process. Each focus area is assigned a subgroup of reviewers, which allows for detailed discussions and recommendations specific to those focus areas. The CAC works closely with AAM staff to ensure the program reflects a thoughtful balance of topics based on the needs of the field, previous meeting evaluations, and active conversations in the field. The 2022 Content Advisory Committee Chair is Nathan Richie, Director of the Golden History Museum & Park and AAM Board Member.
