Comments from 2023 Annual Conference attendees

These conferences are so valuable! Thanks to the OMA board for all of their hard work to create this learning “weekend.” Your efforts are greatly appreciated.

"I definitely feel a bit more confident in tackling projects around the museum that I felt I couldn't accomplish or had to wait to accomplish to do it "right". Better is better than not started at all."

"It was a very well-rounded conference.”
