Topics that we are interested in (not an exhaustive list)
Meeting the challenges of the world around us
Developing income streams
Developing the visitor experience
How are you using the AIM Hallmarks of Prospering Museums?
Work to promote the good health and wellbeing of visitors, staff and volunteers
The most important factor is that a topic should be relevant and of interest to the conference delegates.
AIM conference delegates are looking for both inspiration and practical tips that they can take back to their museums. A wide range of museums and heritage organisations are represented at the conference including volunteer run museums and heritage sites, museums with a small staff and very limited budgets through to some of the UK’s largest museums – we need our programme to provide interest to everyone.
The formats can be
Presentation (approx. 20 mins)
Workshop- approx. 45 mins
If you are proposing something different please explain it on the form
Audience interaction (at least the opportunity for Q&A) is important.
NB we cannot pay speakers, but speakers receive a free delegate place for the day they are speaking on. We can provide assistance for travel expenses where there is a need.
An AIM conference panel will assess which proposals will fit best with the conference theme and the needs of the audience. We will also look to select proposals that reflect the wide range of our membership.
Please fill in the proposal form and send to Emma Chaplin firstname.lastname@example.org by 5pm on Monday 30th September. We will review the proposals during October and let people know the outcome during November. If you have any questions in the meantime, please do not hesitate to get in touch. Thank you.
