Advocacy in action
The president's proposed FY2019 budget again calls for the elimination of the National Endowment for the Arts, the National Endowment for the Humanities, and the Institute of Museum and Library Services. The budget document can be found here: https://www.whitehouse.gov/omb/budget/
MPMA will be sending our board president and executive director to D.C. for Museums Advocacy Day 2018 in a few weeks to advocate on the part of our regional museums.
Read this statement on how YOU can help the American Alliance of Museums advocate for our country's museums and cultural institutions.
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.
