Every year, we invite you to enjoy three days of professional development and gain practical ideas and insights from museum experts. Attend conference sessions, expand your professional network and build friendships, share your ideas with colleagues, take local museum and sight-seeing tours, and more. The CWAM annual meeting will provide new inspiration to make your work more effective whether you’re new to the field or an experienced museum professional.

Save the Date: April 27-30, 2022. See you in Colorado Springs next year!

As CWAM enters its 50th year of bringing together museum professionals from Wyoming and Colorado, it’s easy to continue charging forward, especially after the challenges of 2020-2021. At this Annual Meeting, we want to encourage everyone to pause, take a breath, and reflect. Many of us were not in our current positions, our current museums, or even born 50 years ago, but that doesn’t mean that we can’t learn from what our museums have done over the past half-century.

Museums 50 years ago were inspiring, exciting, and, in some cases, infuriating. Our predecessors have provided us with building blocks, but also cause for reinvention. At this conference, we invite you to share with your colleagues the many ways your museum has continued to do what works, or how it is unrecognizable from how it was was decades ago. We look forward to paying homage to our museum ancestors while, at the same time, celebrating museum revolutionaries!
