Museum Association of New York 2024 Annual Conference at Hilton Albany - New York Consulate Region

Registration is now closed

From April 6-9, 2024, the Museum Association of New York’s (MANY) Annual Conference, “Giving Voice to Value,” will take place in Albany, NY.

Join hundreds of museum professionals from across the state to discuss the proposition that it is time to look at new ways to communicate our value to stakeholders, funders, legislators, visitors, and communities. Museums dedicate resources to rationalize relevance, impact, community service, and investment in collections, programs, and facilities. What if those resources could be allocated to doing the work instead of pursuing funding for the next big thing that will help keep the doors open? What could our future look like if we created a sustainable business model that connected collections, education, and communications and correlated our values to our budgets?


  • Over 100 presenters in 25 concurrent sessions, pre-conference workshops, and capstone experiences;
  • Two keynotes;
  • Special events at the New York State Education Department Building, the New York State Museum;
  • Eclipse viewing and after party;
  • And a Night at the Museums tour.
