January 2022 TAM Executive Leaders Digest
TAM Executive Leaders Digest - January 2022
Thank you for your TAM membership and leadership as we work together to strengthen Texas museums. Below is our January Executive Leaders Digest featuring TAM 2022 Annual Meeting updates and other member and programmatic news. Institutional membership allows volunteers, part-time, or full-time staff at your museum to get a user account to receive discounted rates on all programming. If you want to add more staff or volunteers, then all we need is first and last names with email addresses and we can create user accounts for them.
