The annual Museums Advocacy Day takes place in February at the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C. Advocates around the country gather for two days.  The first day is for issue briefings and political updates, and special sessions with advocacy experts and colleagues who are leading innovative advocacy experiences in their states. Training includes step-by-step instructions for how to set up meetings with elected officials in your home town and what to say during those meetings.  AAM hosts Advocacy Day and arranges all appointments in DC.

Economic Impact Statement:  Samples

Whenever you visit a member of Congress, hand him/her an Economic Impact Statement for your museum.  These carry a lot of weight with Congress and they are easy to create.

How To Guide: This is a step-by-step guide for making appointments and discussing issues.

About MPMA's Advocacy

MPMA helps its members get their issues heard at the regional and national levels. MPMA represents the mountain and plains sections of the country at the American Association of Museums' Council of Regional Associations (CRA) which discusses and advises AAM on trends and issues from around the nation. MPMA encourages its members to inform MPMA about issues and trends from the field so that it can bring these to the attention of this national body. It also encourages members to alert MPMA to any situation that may require helping public officials better understand the role of museums in a local community or state.
