Introducing IAM Connects
IAM Connects are virtual roundtable discussions open to all IAM members. IAM board members and members gather virtually to share resources and discuss themes relevant to Idaho museums and their staff and volunteers. IAM board members are pleased to host these conversations via Zoom and record them so that they can continue to be a resource to IAM members in the future.
Network with colleagues, right from your computer!
