Annual Conference

2021ConferenceSeriesRegistration is now open for the AMA's 50th Anniversary Conference Series!

Join us throughout 2021 as we mark the AMA's anniversary with a special four-part virtual Conference Series celebrating excellence in the Alberta museum community over the past 50 years and examining the trends and priorities that are shaping the future of our sector.


About the Conference Series

The 2021 Conference Series will be guided by the four pillars of Reconciliation, Inclusion, Community, and Innovation. Across events in March, June, September, and November, we will explore the dynamic ways museums embed these pillars in their work to represent, engage, and connect with the people and world around them.

With each live half-day virtual event, you will hear from sector leaders in keynote presentations, join in breakout sessions, and network with colleagues for social events to close out the day. 

Delegates will also have access to a special event hub with exclusive Conference tie-in content released alongside the program, session recordings available after the event, and opportunities to join in the AMA's celebrations as we look back on the Alberta museum community over the last 50 years.

As an ongoing series in a dynamic virtual space, each event program will feature different session formats and unique opportunities to participate and engage with fellow delegates. Program details will be released approximately one month ahead of each event.
