Thank you for your museum's membership in the Virginia Association of Museums. To make accessing member benefits easy for all the staff, volunteers, and board members at your museum, please use the following tools and tips:
Getting your staff, volunteers, and board involved in VAM:
- First, connect the folks at your museum with VAM, so that they may get news, program alerts, and notice of professional development opportunities, networking events, advocacy alerts, and more. There are several ways to do this:
- Send VAM a spreadsheet of contact information for the people associated with your museum. The spreadsheet must include, at a minimum, a field for first name, a field for last name, a field for email, and a field for title. Spreadsheets should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Contact VAM to get a customized signup URL for your museum. You can then use this template letter to distribute this link to everyone at your museum and let them sign up if they are interested in taking advantage of the benefits of VAM membership. Email email@example.com or call the VAM office at 804.358.3170 to get your museum's URL or with any questions.
- You may request VAM materials (member brochures, bookmarks, pencils, and bumper stickers) for distribution to the staff, volunteers, and board members at your museum. Make your request to firstname.lastname@example.org. Quantities are limited.
