The BC Museums Association is seeking proposals for host communities to host the annual conference in 2018, 2019, or 2020.

Each October the BC Museums Association holds a nationally-recognized provincial conference in a British Columbia community, creating an opportunity for members and future members to gather and discuss issues of relevance to the museum, gallery, archive, heritage and related sectors. We are looking for our next communities to host the annual conference in partnership with the BCMA.

The BCMA strongly encourages members to work closely with local hotels, conference centres, and other partners to develop strong host community proposals.  The deadline for submitting proposals is Friday, August 11, 2017.

Conferences typically see 150 delegates attend from across BC, typically staff from small to large cultural institutions, and students.

We currently alternate conference locations between the Lower Mainland and Vancouver Island but are open to proposals from other areas if the partnership opportunities are strong.

To learn more about submitting a proposal, please read the full Request for Proposals to host Annual Conference in 2018, 2019, or 2020.

For questions or other inquiries, please contact Heather Jeliazkov.
