Institutional Membership Benefits & Eligilbility

AAMC institutional members contribute to the organization by providing the central funding for the organization each year. We are confident that the growth of the AAMC will continue to reflect the support and desire of museum directors across the country to see the curatorial profession flourish and serve both our institutions and the larger museum community. Our sliding scale dues structure is based on an institution’s budget. 

The AAMC is continuously expanding its programming and networking opportunities, this includes webinars, events, awards, mentorships, and overall professional development. One complimentary individual membership and complimentary registration to the Conference for an AAMC member on staff are new benefits of institutional membership.  Please note neither of these benefits can be applied retroactively, and will take effect as institutional members join or renew in 2016, and then as the individual joins or renews.  

Current membership benefits include ability to post positions on, access to our resources and member portal on, AAMC's e-news about programs and opportunities, and recognition of support.

For more information about becoming an Institutional Member, please email aamc[at]artcurators[dot]org.
