The BCMA Webinar series is back for 2018!  We are excited to launch the new year by announcing its first two webinars.

The first webinar of 2018 will help you Write Your Own Fundraising Plan!  Join Cassie Holcomb from The Robert Bateman Centre on January 16 as she touches on the critical components of a fundraising plan like targets, memberships, grants, donations and appeals, stewardship, and new revenue streams.  You will leave the webinar with the tools and materials you need to build your own plan and put you on the right fundraising track for the new year!

The following month, on February 20, one of Canada’s most experienced museum professionals will guide webinar participants on a journey through Planning Successful Exhibitions.  Join Tim Willis as he explores some exhibitions around the world and have fun learning from their failures! Then look at 10 key principles that provide the foundation for a successful exhibition. The presentation will focus on practical solutions that work for every museum and gallery regardless of mission or size.
