The Museum Association of Arizona was founded in 1982 as a non-profit organization dedicated to the enrichment and support of Arizona’s museum community. Its purpose is to:
Foster communication and cooperation between Arizona museums and related organizations
Provide educational opportunities for museum workers through meetings and publications
Advocate and publicize these objectives statewide
The Museum Association of Arizona exists to build a vital museum community. We strengthen all of Arizona’s museums so they are recognized as essential to the fabric of their communities. We do this through professional development, advocacy, and the creation of networking opportunities across the state.
The state is divided into four regions, each represented by a Regional Director, whose responsibility it is to ensure that the museums wtihin that region are able to fully access information and opportunities offered by MAA.
Northern Region: Ann-Mary Lutsick (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Central Region: Marcus Monenerkit (email@example.com )
Southern Region: JJ Lamb (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Western Region: Tina Clark (email@example.com)
There are eight Standing Committees charged with carrying out the work of the Association. Each of these Committees is represented on the Board of Directors either by its Chair or by an appointed Board Liaison.
