Museum Manager Mondays

Being a museum manager is a challenging and often isolating role. Museum Manager Mondays is a new program to help professionals in leadership positions connect, network, and provide mutual support.

Looking for more ways to connect?

Join us monthly for Watercooler Wednesday for casual conversation and connection.

 

Join BCMA Executive Director Ryan Hunt for a monthly one-hour online discussion where museum, gallery, heritage, and cultural managers, EDs, and lead curators can discuss the challenges they face in their roles – from navigating stakeholder relationships, to working with boards, to HR issues, and beyond. All too often cultural managers feel isolated in their roles and with the increased rates of stress and anxiety during the COVID-19 pandemic, it is more important than ever that we feel part of a connected and supportive community.

Museum Manager Mondays is a new program and will evolve to meet the needs of our members. Currently, we are holding a 60-minute Museum Manager Monday session on the third Monday of every month at 12 pm, but if this format doesn’t meet your needs, please contact us and we can discuss how we can adapt the program to better support you.

Being a museum manager is a challenging and often isolating role. From navigating stakeholder relationships, to working with boards, to HR issues, many cultural managers lack peer networks of support. Museum Manager Monday will provide an online environment for professionals in leadership positions across the province to network, provide mutual support, and discuss solutions for the challenges we face.
