The Louisiana Association of Museums is a not-for-profit membership organization founded in 1979 to help our state’s museums better serve their communities. An active and energetic organization, LAM offers amazing benefits!
LAM designs and distributes Louisiana Museums: A Guide to Louisiana's Historic and Cultural Treasures, listing all of its institutional members. LAM also maintains a website with an on-line Job Bank, produces a quarterly newsletter, and conducts surveys to gather information for advocacy use.
LAM holds meetings around the state that provide museum professionals networking and collaboration opportunities. Professional skills and techniques used in museum work at all levels are sharpened through the Annual Conference, Spring Summit, and our Professional Development Workshop Series.
Whether you are an employee, volunteer, trustee, patron, or fan of any of Louisiana’s museums or historic sites, membership in LAM is an indication of your commitment to excellence in Louisiana’s museums. It’s inexpensive, and the benefits are numerous and rewarding. Join today and become involved in the Louisiana Association of Museums!
