Keeping Our Balance:

Innovation and Tradition



The theme of the 2013 Museum Association of Arizona Annual Meeting is “Keeping Our Balance: Innovation and Tradition.” Speakers and sessions will address how to build strong, progressive, and relevant institutions by honoring tradition, by taking an enlightened look at status quo, by creating supportive environments where new ideas can be introduced, and by developing and empowering leadership who can guide a process to implementation. Practically speaking, this means taking advantage of the enthusiasm and energy of youth, acknowledging the wisdom and experience of older staff, being on the cutting edge of new technologies, and making our institutions places where respect and trust allow open debate. Join us to learn what has worked well for others and share your organization’s tried-and-true practices--and your successful radical new ideas, as well!
