Packed and Ready for Denver?

Colorado Convention Center
Yeah, neither are we—but we’re getting close. We’re expecting 5,500 attendees this year, including more than 700 who have never before been to an AAM Annual Meeting. If you’re among the newcomers, stop by the First-Time Attendee Welcome Reception on Sunday, April 27, 5–6 p.m., in the Wells Fargo Theatre Lobby (outside the General Session Theatre). You’ll meet other fresh faces and special ambassador members who can help maximize your meeting experience.

Remember the location: You’ll likely visit the theater again on April 28 and April 30, 10:30 a.m.–noon, to catch keynote speakers Terry Tempest Williams and Michael Chabon. (Check out the Rocky Mountain News article on how both Chabon and AAM are preparing for the meeting, and a recent New York Times piece with extensive quotes from Williams.) After their talks, you’ll have a chance for a personal moment with each author in the AAM Bookstore. They’ll sign copies of their books, available for purchase throughout the meeting.

After Williams’ book-signing on Monday, head to the MuseumExpo™ Opening Reception for a complimentary catered lunch and the first chance to explore the sold-out expo hall—more than 350 vendors! Visit www.museumexpo.org to plot your course.
