Submit a Conference Session Proposal



Lynchburg, Virginia - March 23-26, 2019




Thank you for submitting a session proposal for the 2019 Annual Conference. Please complete the form below. If you have any problems or questions, please contact Christina Newton at or call 804.358.3173. The deadline for submissions is Monday, July 30.  


Briefly describe the main learning objectives, relevance to the field or areas of study, and outcomes that the attendees will obtain. Also please add what level of training you wish to share; ex. Is this for the beginner or advanced. Sessions are evaluated more highly when presenters offer tangible takeaways or resources, opportunities to interact with others, and have confirmed speakers.

VAM reserves the right to edit for length and clarity, and to match a submission with another in the event similar sessions topics are submitted.

It is requested that speakers provide their own laptop and projector and any necessary attachments for their session as VAM only owns three LCD projectors; two are available for use and the third is used for an emergency backup. Request for use of a VAM projector is on a first come, first use basis and all efforts will be made to fill requests. Screens will be provided.

Internet access will be available in some of the meeting spaces we will be using at the conference. Please indicate whether you must have internet for your session and every effort will be made to accommodate your request.

Accepted sessions will comprise the educational program of the conference. If a session meets the curriculum requirements of VAM's Virginia Certificate in Museum Management, it will be indicated as such and promoted as part of an applicable "track". Please indicate if your session meets any of the five curriculum.

Thank you for your interest in our 2019 Annual Conference to be held in Lynchburg, Virginia over March 23-26, 2019. We are extremely grateful for your time and effort to submit a session proposal. In the event your session is selected, any persons taking part in a session will be asked to register for the conference. In thanks, speakers are offered the lowest rates whether for full or single day attendance. Those only able to speak at their session will be able to do so at no charge.

Thank You Conference 2018 Sponsors
