2024 Conference: Ebb & Flow

Sunday, September 8 - Tuesday, September 10
The Mill Casino Hotel
| Coos Bay

As we gather for the Oregon Museums Association 2024 Annual Conference in Coos Bay, the conference theme “Ebb & Flow” acknowledges the nearby coastline while providing a metaphor to reflect on the work of Oregon’s museums today.

It can feel like the sands are shifting as museums face challenges and opportunities like changing patterns of visitorship, evolving technologies, revised funding strategies, and peoples’ desire for community. The 2024 conference will explore contemporary issues facing museums, so that together we can take the helm to identify solutions and successfully steer our work forward.

Whether you are an emerging professional just getting your feet wet, in the mid-career flow, or an established leader navigating the depths of museum work, we invite you to join us at The Mill Casino Hotel in Coos Bay, September 8-10, 2024.


The call for proposals is now open! Please review the information below and submit your proposal by June 6.

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.”
