Subsidized Registration

#AAM2023 Subsidized Registration

Demonstrating Denver’s Diversity

Applications are now open through March 22

About Subsidized Registration Rates

For the AAM Annual Meeting & MuseumExpo to meet its full potential, we need participation from the broadest possible spectrum of people who work in our field – from emerging professionals to senior leaders, from large and small museums, and from a diverse array of individuals, particularly those in groups that are underrepresented in our field. For some, the costs of attending a conference may put this rewarding experience out of reach, and that means a lost opportunity not only for these professionals but for our field as a whole. The more voices we can include, the better our results in tackling the challenges for our field and our future.

Our heavily subsidized registration level is for Denver area museum people working to make our field better and seeks to strengthen and connect the host city’s museum professional community in all its diversity. Through the support of our generous donors and members, we are offering subsidized registrations for up to 50 museum people who live or work in the Denver metro area (identified as the seven county tax district of SCFD). The Alliance wishes to express appreciation to the Rose Community Foundation which has generously supported this program.

Applications for subsidized registrations are now open through March 22. If you are selected, you will receive a fixed-rate code that you can use to receive the subsidized $100 registration rate to attend #AAM2023 (up to $900 value). Notifications will be sent no later than March 31, 2023.


Applications are open to individuals (members and non-members) living or working in the Denver metro area (identified as the seven county tax district of SCFD) who would not be able to attend #AAM2023 without financial assistance or identify as belonging to an underrepresented or marginalized community, including but not limited to:

  • Persons of color including members of a federally recognized American Indian nation or Alaska Native corporation
  • Persons in the LGBTQ+ community
  • Persons with a physical, cognitive, or developmental disability

Preference may be given to applicants who:

  • Are students, early, or mid-career professionals
  • Are leaders of small institutions of 10 or fewer staff
  • Are holding DEAI leadership responsibilities (Diversity Officers, Inclusion Directors, etc.) within their museum
  • Are working in institutions identified by the SCFD as Tier 2 or 3 members
  • Are current AAM members
