Making the Case for your Museum: Advocacy Strategies that Work! Presented by members of BCMA’s Advocacy committee May 18 – 24 is BC Museums Week. What better time to make the case for your museum? There are hundreds of museums across the province and the vast majority of them receive some form of investment from local governments. Building strong relationships and lasting partnerships with local government officials is the first step on this path for support. It can be hard work – but it is also very worthwhile. In this webinar, members of BCMA’s Advocacy committee will explore best practices for building positive and lasting relationships with municipal governments and regional districts. The webinar will showcase positive examples, spotlight common challenges and include voices from BCMA members who have had success in increasing support from their municipalities. Participants will come away with solid tips, tools and strategies for making the case about the powerful role museums play in creating economic, social and cultural benefits for communities and why local governments should invest in your organization.
