The BC Museums Association is pleased to present a monthly webinar series!

On the third Tuesday of every month, join your museum colleagues from around the province (and around the world) for a lunch-hour webinar.  These engaging professional resource opportunities will cover a different topic each month, from education to conservation, marketing to exhibit fabrication, and everything else in between.  Museum professionals from within our membership will present each webinar, with special guests along the way.

For more information and a full schedule of future webinars, please visit our webinar page.

The BCMA webinar series is available free to BCMA members.  To become a member, please click here.

Our 2017 webinar season was presented in partnership with the Royal BC Museum and Archives.
