Advocacy in action
Happy New Year! The 116th Congress starts today, January 3, 2019, and it's a great time to introduce yourself and your museum to your new and/or returning legislators. Calling their offices is one of the most effective forms of advocacy communication-- find their contact information here: https://www.govtrack.us/
About MPMA's Advocacy
MPMA advocates for members at the regional and national level and represents the region at the AAM Council of Regional Associations (CRA). The CRA discusses and advises AAM on trends and issues from around the nation.
MPMA members are encouraged to inform MPMA staff and board members about issues and trends from the field so they can be conveyed to this national body.
Members are also encouraged to alert MPMA to any situation that may require helping public officials understand the beneficial role of museums in a local community or state.
