Texas Historical Commission’s Museum Services is partnering with Texas Association of Museums and the American Alliance of Museums to offer “Words to Live By: 5 Powerful Tools for your Museum’s Success.”

Does your museum have a …

  • Mission Statement?
  • Code of Ethics?
  • Strategic Institutional Plan?

  • Collections Management Policy?

This all-day workshop provides the training, tools, and resources to help museums develop or improve their own core documents through hands-on activities and interactive discussions with an AAM staff member and other workshop attendees.In addition, real life examples of these essential documents are included for reference and review.
