    The next conversation about MUSEUMS AND CHANGE will take place July 28 at 12:30pm EDT. We hope you will join us for this engaging presentation and discussion on this compelling topic for all museums and related organizations.  

    We are fortunate to have Marsha Semmel, one of our most influential and engaging museum leaders, join us as a guest presenter.  

    Partnership Power

    Museum-community partnerships  require time, people, money and other resources. They need to withstand staff, leadership, and budgetary shifts. Why, then, invest in these relationships?  In this session, Partnership Power author Marsha Semmel will explore why museums can't afford to be islands in their communities, the potential benefits of partnerships, and some basic principles of successful collaborations, especially relating to power dynamics and equity.

    Marsha L. Semmel is an independent consultant working with cultural and educational organizations on leadership development, strategic planning, and partnerships. In 2019, she published Partnership Power: Essential Museum Strategies for Today's Networked World. Marsha has held senior leadership positions with NEH and IMLS and served as  President and CEO posts at Conner Prairie and the Women of the West Museum. She also serves as adjunct faculty in the Bank Street College of Education's graduate program in museum leadership.
