    When it comes to museum pest management strategies, preventative care is the safest and most cost-effective option. Whether writing your first pest management policy or simply looking for methods to protect your collections from pests, this webinar will cover how to write a basic integrated pest policy, address pest concerns, and how to keep museum
    staff and volunteers invested in the process.

    The pandemic has changed so much about museum education. As tours and in-person programming were unavailable, we had to reinvent the ways in which we connected and worked with our audiences. Now that we’re emerging to a place where in-person learning can take place again, we’re still left grappling with how to move forward in a way that reflects all that we’ve learned.

    During this meetup, museum educators will have an opportunity to chat in small groups about welcoming back tour groups, integrating digital learning, recruiting and managing docents, and/or professional development outreach and facilitation.

    Hosted by Amanda Coven, OMA Board member and Director of Education at the Oregon Jewish Museum and Center for Holocaust Education
