Moving on up 2014

Help the MA develop Moving on up 2015

Rebecca Atkinson, 25.06.2014
One-day conference for early career professionals
Following the success of Moving on up earlier this year, the Museums Association (MA) will be holding another one-day career development and networking conference in Leicester in February 2015.

Aimed at museum professionals in the first five years of their career, the event aims to empower and inspire a radical workforce who challenge themselves and the sector. The 2015 event will include speed mentoring with sector leaders, inspiring keynotes and practical sessions, with a focus on resilience and putting Museums Change Lives into practice.

We are looking for enthusiastic museum professionals to help us shape the programme and attend the conference. You should be well-connected, up-to-date with issues affecting the sector and willing to get stuck in.

Being a member of the Moving on up programming committee will involve:

  • attending two/three meetings to discuss the event
  • contributing ideas for content and speakers
  • helping to promote the event to your networks, via social media and blogs etc
  • attending the day, helping to facilitate sessions, networking with delegates and speakers

As well as receiving a free place at the event, members of the organising committee will get the opportunity to contribute to a sector-wide event; network with junior and senior professionals; gain career development skills; and develop a working relationship with the MA.

If you are interested in being on the organising committee, please send us no more than one side of A4 covering:

  • a brief description of your career to date (not a CV)
  • one idea for a session, speaker or networking opportunity at Moving on up 2015
  • what you would bring to the organising committee.
