OMA meet up at Cascade Locks Historical Museum, August 2022.
OMA supports regional meet ups across the state, which can be casual or more structured.
Help us plan meet ups across the state
We're looking for folks to host OMA meet ups across the state.
OMA meet-ups are informal and engaging opportunities to connect and network with fellow professionals in the museum world. They are an opportunity for people to share successes and struggles, pitch new ideas and ask questions, and to find support and inspiration. Above all though, we want to create a space for museum and museum-adjacent professionals to have the time to simply meet and have fun!
Meet-ups are what you make them! You can choose one of the following formats (or make up your own!):
If you are interested in hosting a meet up, either this May or any other time, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please reach out to us if you'd like to host a Meet Up this August. Details are above. Send us an email at email@example.com.
