    Due to COVID-19 the 4th Biennial IDAHO’S HERITAGE CONFERENCE has been postponed to 2022. It is with deep empathy and compassion for the rise in COVID-19 cases that the Heritage Partners and representatives from the city of Pocatello have made the difficult decision to postpone the event until 2022.

Travel Stipends Available for Idaho Heritage Conference

IAM is partnering with the Idaho’s Heritage Partners to bring four days of workshops, sessions and networking opportunities to Pocatello.  IAM wants all museum professionals and volunteers in the Gem State to join us for the 2021 Idaho’s Heritage Conference from September 27-30th in Pocatello, Idaho.  In order to support a broad participation from our members, IAM has scholarship funds available to offset the cost of conference registration, travel, and lodging.

Those interested in applying for a scholarship of up to $500 should send a 1-2 page letter of interest to: idahomuseum@gmail.com with the subject line: IAM Stipend.

This letter should address why you want to attend the Idaho’s Heritage Conference and how attending would benefit your Idaho museum and/or your professional development.

Applications will be accepted from any individual affiliated with an IAM member institution and must be received no later than August 16th, 2021. Scholarship recipients will be notified by August 20th.

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.
