Museum Advocacy Alerts and Resources

VAM serves as an advocate for museums, has presented testimony before hearings, and regularly provides information on the Virginia and District of Columbia museum community to elected officials.

Through our Legislative Updates, we keep members informed about legislation of interest.

Our Advocacy Alerts let members know when it is time to act on an issue – send an email, make a phone call, and get involved.

This page will be updated as news happens.
