This anonymous survey is designed to measure the impact of COVID 19 on Nevada museums and museum professionals. The Nevada Museums Association board is anticipating an influx of stimulus and economic support legislature over the course of the next few months and next year’s legislative session. This survey will help NMA advocate on behalf of Nevada’s museums in an informed manner. NMA will make the anonymous data available on our website. We will omit names of members, organizations, and other identifying data, so members may use this resource for COVID 19 related advocacy.
If you have any questions about the survey or how it will be used please direct those questions to Garrett Barmore, email@example.com. We understand you are very busy during this time and we appreciate your continued support of NMA.
