OMA 2019 Annual Conference in John Day, OR. Ann Dowdy, board member, and Kathleen Daly, volunteer who helped organize the conference events.
Founded in 1978, the Oregon Museums Association (OMA) empowers Oregon's museums to thrive. Valuing inclusion and friendship, OMA strengthens connections throughout the Oregon museum community with lively discussion and networking at in-person events and via online media; insightful programming and training at our annual conference and workshops; and targeted advocacy to advance the museum field.
As an OMA member, you can be a part of the museums community in several ways, from small steps to more involved partnerships.
Members of the OMA Board of Directors serve on seven working committees that plan and implement our programs and support and refine our organization. We are looking for one non-board OMA member to serve on each committee.
If you are interested in serving on a committee, please fill out the volunteer form. Each committee will review applications and decide on best fit. That candidate's application will be brought to a monthly board meeting and approved by the full board.
OMA currently partners with several state-serving and regional organizations, as well as other museum associations to co-host and cross promote events, and collaborate on initiatives that support the museum community in Oregon. Our partners include:
