50 years of advancing technology in museums
Happy Birthday MCN!
We are Susan Edwards and Marla Misunas, co-chairs of the #MCN50 committee.
We’re working with MCN leadership to develop a whole year of community projects and events throughout 2017.
You can also check out the Get Involved page to see specific roles we are looking to fill throughout the year. Help with small tasks that can be completed in a few minutes (take a screenshot for us!), or take leadership of a project (produce an event, or manage an initiative). As the MCN2016 conference rolls around, we’ll be adding more opportunities to participate. We also hope you’ll reach out and suggest something.
