Tuesday, April 25, 2023, 11:30 am - 1:00 pm PST

Join our panel of experts in the Oregon museum community to hear about how to work with consultants: how to find them, fund them, work with them and get the expert support you want. We'll also hear from a small, all-volunteer museum on their experience with consultants.

Attendees will have at least 30 minutes to ask questions and talk with consultants in breakout groups. Come prepared with your questions!
