"MAP has spurred us to reinvigorate our collections policies, given us ammunition for governing support and helped us reshape our future."—Sue Grosboll, director, University of Northern Iowa Museum & Collections
MAP application is now available at http://www.aam-us.org/museumresources/map/apply.cfm
The deadline is Dec. 1, 2011
Since 1981, the Museum Assessment Program (MAP) has helped museums maintain and improve operations through a confidential, consultative process. We provide guidance in meeting priorities and goals and understanding how your museum compares to standards and best practices. Participating in MAP can help:
In less than a year, your museum can complete a self-study, have a site visit by a peer reviewer and begin implementing recommendations. For those applying for the December 1st deadline, you will receive additional benefits, including an online community, MAP bookshelf and access to the AAM Information Center and Museum Essentials webinar series.
- prioritize goals so you can allocate resources wisely
- document your needs so that you can make a stronger case to funders,
- provide recommendations on ways to become an even stronger institution.
