Museum Association of Arizona


2014 MAA Conference


May 1-2, 2014

 Mutual Engagement: Museums and Communities


The most fundamental institutions in any town or city are banks, churches, hospitals, libraries, and post offices. These institutions meet essential needs and provide crucial services in their community, and in turn, the community looks to them for leadership. Do Arizona’s museums fit on this list? How can we get them there? 

Join us at the duBois Center on the campus of Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff for the 2014 Annual Conference as we consider the benefits of mutual engagement and explore innovative ways to actively engage your community with your museum. Discuss how to establish relationships with other organizations to address your community’s needs. Explore ideas for laying the foundation within your own institution to collaborate with new partners.


MAA’s mission is to “strengthen all of Arizona’s museums so they are recognized as essential to the fabric of their communities.” Cultivating reciprocal relationships between your museum and the audiences you serve is an important step toward sustaining both your institution and your community.

  Silent and Live Auction

The Silent and Live Auctions provide funds for Museum Association of Arizona membership services, including the website, newsletter and professional development programs.  Personal donations, as well as items from your museum shop, are welcome.


There will not be any single “Conference Hotel”.   All of the sessions will be at Northern Arizona University’s  duBois Center on the South Campus. We suggest you stay at one of the hotels in the nearby Woodlands Village neighborhood (just west of the South Campus).   A list of hotels with their current (March 1) rates for double rooms is available for your convenience, but the choice is up to you.
