Pictured: The 2019 National Program Committee at the National WWII Museum in New Orleans.

The National Program Committee is responsible for the review and selection of program sessions and must ensure that the program reflects a thoughtful balance of topics. The committee is composed of individuals representing diverse professional expertise, regional affiliations, and types of institutions that have an overview of the entire museum field. Proposals are peer-reviewed and are given fair and honest appraisal to provide Annual Meeting participants with the most current thinking on a range of subjects.
