Friends made and things learned

The last couple of posts to grace this little corner of the interwebs have been focused on conferences, both past and future.  They’ve gotten me reminiscing  about the many ALHFAM conferences that I’ve attended over the years and I started thinking about all the things I’ve learned and friends I’ve made as a result of being a part of this organization.

Above all else, I have enjoyed the openness and fellowship that you just can’t find at another organization’s annual (or regional) meetings.  The ability to do hands on activities and get behind the scenes peeks has been absolutely invaluable to my museum career and I look forward to having many more.

If you haven’t yet joined this wonderful group, perhaps it’s time!  You can find all the information you need here; in addition to checking out our new and spiffy website!!!

It’s only a matter of weeks before the great traveling road show that is the annual ALHFAM meeting takes place.  Until that time, enjoy some images from regional, national, and even some board meetings that I have enjoyed!

Gold star for anyone who can identify the locations below!! 🙂

What are some of your favorite ALHFAM memories?

    You’ve captured one of my fondest ALHFAM memories in your photos Derrick — the Board Meeting at Tiller’s, where I had the first opportunity to try my hand at driving oxen. Living history at it’s finest!
