Thanks for Coming!

My second AAM Annual Meeting is nearly complete, and I mean that in every sense of the word. Four-plus days of total immersion with colleagues from across the country and around the world made for a rewarding, enlightening and exhilarating experience. My heartfelt thanks for all those who came to Denver and created such a wonderful atmosphere.

The greatest thing about working in this field is the fabulous people you meet. I talked to hundreds of interesting, committed people these past four days and have learned from each one. The insights we gathered in Denver will likely inform the coming year for AAM and better enable us to serve all of you.

Now, next week all of us at AAM will begin planning and thinking about next year's meeting in Philadelphia. I hope all of you can join us there. Come and find me; I'll be the tall guy with the beard.

I think it is great that AAM has integrated this blog, and I think the Annual Meeting was a great success. The programs were dynamic, and I was especially excited about the new web 2.0 ideas being pushed by the sector. I started bookmarking some web 2.0 programs and ideas from AAM here for anyone that is interested:

As a one-time museum administrator I am delighted to see the head of AAM in the blogsphere---this really is a change! I remember being upbraided by a colleague who told me with conviction that the rise of the internet spelled the end of museums!
