Starting in June, the NMA Happy Hour will be held at a new time and on a new bi-monthly schedule, and a new event, the NMA Coffee Klatsch, will be added to our schedule.
The NMA Coffee Klatsch will be a bi-monthly meetup taking place at 10am on the last Friday of every other month. The first one will be held on June 28 and is open to all museum workers. Each meetup will be loosely structured around a theme; the June 28 event theme is “Meet the NMA Board”.
The NMA Happy Hour will remain a more free-wheeling chance to relax with fellow museum workers and discuss whatever strikes your fancy. With everyone going back to work on-site and more traditional weekend activities opening up again, Friday evenings are getting a little crowded, so we’ve moved the event to the last Wednesday of every other month, at 6pm.
Here’s the schedule for the rest of 2021:
- Coffee Klatch, Friday, June 25, 10 am, “Meet the NMA Board”
- Virtual Happy Hour, Wednesday, July 28, 6 pm
- Coffee Klatch, Friday, August 27, 10 am, “Topic TBD”
- Virtual Happy Hour, Wednesday, September 22, 6 pm
- NMA ANNUAL CONFERENCE – no meetup this month
- Coffee Klatch, Friday, October 22, 10 am “Feedback from the NMA Conference”
- Break for November and December
