With the theme of FORWARD, WMA's 2022 Annual Meeting will focus on the ways museums can be adaptable, FORWARD-thinking institutions.
With 36 sessions, 2 keynotes, 4 evening events, 2 tours, and many new opportunities to share content with colleagues and make in-person connections, #WMA2022 will be a fun and creative gathering of museum folk.
Silent Auction donations
At each OMA conference we hold a Silent Auction to earn money for scholarships to the next year's conference. Here's some ideas of what you could donate:
The Annual Meeting will be held at the Hilton Portland Downtown.
Carpool and stay with colleagues
Looking for a roommate to share hotel costs? Do you live in Portland and have a spare room to offer? Want to carpool to Portland?
WMA is looking for volunteers for the conference. Volunteers must serve a minimum of four hours, and will receive equal time attendance to the conference (work four hours, get four hours of conference access).

“I found the conference overall very interesting and appreciated the level of involvement between speakers and the audience.”
“I really enjoyed the conference. I appreciated it being remote. That allowed me to attend. I appreciated the captioning making sessions accessible.”
"It's great to have collaboration and I hope it continues in the future -- between OMA and WaMA, as well as with other museum associations!!”
