What is RC-MPMA?
The RC-MPMA is a Professional Interest Network within MPMA and is affiliated with the Collection Stewardship Professional Network of the American Alliance of Museums (CS-AAM). You do not need to be a member of MPMA to be active in RC-MPMA, however, it is strongly encouraged.
All museum professionals who have an interest in registration, collection management issues, and related positions are invited to join our organization. Whatever your position or level of expertise in the museum field, you can benefit personally and professionally by joining the RC-MPMA.
The purpose of the RC-MPMA is to promote high standards of museum practice and to foster professional growth between registrars and individuals in related fields. The RC-MPMA promotes the exchange and distribution of information through seminars, publications, and other channels. The organization will follow the Code of Ethics for RC-AAM in all its endeavors.
