Support the SMA Conference
ATTEND AS A
The conference is currently being rescheduled to a spring date to be announced soon!
The increased of costs of safely hosting an in-person conference during COVID-19 have stretched SMA's resources - and our all-volunteer board and conference committee are working to maintain the high-level of programming, resources, networking, and fun that our attendees expect from SMA. That is to say, that this is the year to support SMA as a Conference Hero! This sponsorship package includes: Logo on all conference swag (see below), 4 registrations including all meals, optional vendor hall table, logo on all conference slide presentations and SMA conference app, additional swag in bag, and an opportunity to speak directly to the group.
SMA is offering just three Partner Opportunities for the 2022 conference! Partners will be featured on SMA Conference swag including: Mask, Tote Bag, and/or Water Bottle/Mug. Each item will be given gratis to each of our expected 300 attendees. This sponsorship package also comes with 2 registrations to the conference including all meals, optional vendor hall table, logo on all conference presentations and SMA conference app, additional swag in bag, and an opportunity to address the group. First come, first serve!

Each year, Small Museum Association volunteers gather and display an array of items for a popular silent auction to support conference scholarships. Items range from single books to comprehensive consulting packages. Small or large, your donation to the silent auction supports our Conference Scholars!

Questions about the silent auction should be directed to Kathryn Blackwell at firstname.lastname@example.org.
