TAM Executive Leaders Digest - December 2021

Thank you for your TAM membership and leadership as we work together to strengthen Texas museums. I imagine the holiday lights in your cities look amazing right now. Below is our December 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 some staff, then all we need is first and last names with email addresses and we can create user accounts for them. We opened sponsorships earlier this month here for TAM 2022 Annual Meeting and discounted early-bird tickets opened earlier this month here and are open through January 14th, 2022 with several ticket options - from All-Access to Virtual. 

I’ve pulled out executive leader highlights below:
