Museum Assessment Program

From: Laura Plaisted <lplaisted<-a>
Date: Thursday, November 17, 2005
Applications for the February 15, 2006 postmark deadline for the
Museum Assessment Program are now available at

Applicants will be accepted into the program on a first-come,
first-served basis.

Under a new Cooperative Agreement with the Institute of Museum and
Library Services (IMLS), the American Association of Museums (AAM)
has streamlined the program, making it more accessible to the field.
Changes this year include a decrease in the number of days (now 90)
your museum must be open to be eligible, and museums with budgets
under $125,000 can now participate for free. AAM covers all Surveyor
travel costs (up to $850) and participants receive a $150 Resource
Packet from the AAM Bookstore at the completion of their assessment.

The Museum Assessment Program (MAP) is an assessment tool that can
help your museum attain excellence in operations and planning
through a confidential process of self-study and peer review.

For more information, or to request a hard copy of the application,
call 202-289-9118 or e-mail map<-a t->aam-us< . >org.
