Being a museum manager is a challenging and often isolating role. Museum Managers Monday is a new program to help professionals in leadership positions connect, network, and provide mutual support.

In this new, pilot program join BCMA Executive Director, Ryan Hunt, for a monthly one-hour online discussion where museum, gallery, heritage, and cultural managers, EDs, and lead curators can discuss the challenges they face in their roles – from navigating stakeholder relationships, to working with boards, to HR issues, and beyond. All too often cultural managers feel isolated in their roles and with the increased rates of stress and anxiety during the COVID-19 pandemic, it is more important than ever that we feel part of a connected and supportive community.

Museum Managers Monday is a pilot program and will evolve to meet the needs of our members. Currently, we are planning on holding a 60-minute Museum Managers Monday session on the third Monday of every month at 12 pm, but if this format doesn’t meet your needs, please contact us and we can discuss how we can adapt the program to better support you.
