The BCMA Listserv provides a forum for members and non-members to post job opportunities and discuss issues through this monitored mailing list.
The BCMA Newsletter brings the latest news in programming, funding opportunities, job postings and more right to your inbox. Members receive this automatically. Non-members can sign up below.

Struggling with a challenge in your museum? Chances are, someone in another museum has faced – and solved – the same problem. Subscribe to the BCMA Listserv and ask the advice of museum, culture and heritage professionals across the province.

Posting to the Listserv
To post a notice on the Listserv, send your post to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
No instructions on the post are required (such as “Please post this to the Listserv”), simply write as if you are talking to the entire group. It is best to include all information within the body of the email rather than adding attachments as some recipients have inbox size limits. Small attachments like a low-resolution photo of items or a small PDF are generally fine to post. The subject line should clearly indicate what your notice is about (such as “Job Posting: Exhibit Technician” or “Information required on 1920s dress” or “Solutions for storage?”). Unless it is a post that may result in a discussion that would benefit others, please include your contact information so that members can contact you directly.
What can be posted?
To ensure all interactions within the BC Museums Association Listserv are safe and friendly, BC Museums Association staff moderate Listserv activity and will occasionally review, edit, and delete any inappropriate content that has been submitted. This includes, but is not limited to, abusive or offensive language, spam, malicious files, misleading information, or other disrespectful content. Please note that not all user-submitted content is representative of the BC Museums Association, nor does it necessarily represent the views of the BC Museums Association, its staff or members.
Why haven’t I seen my message go through?
All posts are subject to BCMA moderation. It may take 1-2 business days for the post to be distributed.
PLEASE NOTE: the email address used to submit a post will not receive a copy of the original post, only responses.
Why did I get an email saying I’m not a member?
After submitting a post to the listserv, you may receive an automated message stating the need for moderation due to a “non-member post to a member-only listserv”. This is not referencing your BCMA membership status. In this instance, the message means you are not a moderator. Your post has been received and will be reviewed and posted shortly.
How do I unsubscribe?
