Adaptability for Sustainability: Evolving Beyond Your Institution's Past to Influence Its Future

Register Here

Five years ago, the National Veterans Memorial and Museum was built, and replaced a well-known meeting/event center in Columbus. Since then, the museum has pivoted through a variety of challenges and changes.

Join NVMM’s Kellyn Burkitt and Maureen Mason as they explore the lessons and wins of how their museum has adapted to the changing times and changing needs of their community to remain not just relevant but a thriving community cornerstone.

Learn how the museum is utilizing data and technology, developing innovative programs and exhibits, using grant writing and funding sources, and revamping the membership and donor programs to influence the trajectory of the NVMM’s future – and get ideas and examples for your own museum!

About our speakers:
