    ADVOCACY ALERT: SUPPORT ECONOMIC RELIEF FOR THE MUSEUM COMMUNITY 

    The American Alliance of Museums reached out to its affiliates on March 19 to share their action plan during the COVID-19 crisis. Congress is moving swiftly to pass a massive economic relief package in response and the Alliance is working to ensure the museum community is included. ALHFAM past president, and our longtime “Museum Advocacy Day” representative Pete Watson confirmed ALHFAM’s support of this advocacy initiative and thanked the AAM for their leadership in advancing it. The AAM also encourages you to reach out directly to your legislators. You can use their online action center to find your state and federal legislator information, and personalize your message to Congress in just a few clicks. You can use the same messaging with your state and local legislators. 

    Similarly in Canada the Canadian Museums Association is advocating for the well-being of the sector by requesting a dedicated museum relief fund to support lost revenues and many provincial museum associations are offering pandemic response resources.

    Due to concerns with COVID19, Middlesex County has made the decision to cancel the ALHFAM Regional Conference taking place at East Jersey Old Town Village on March 28, 2020. Conference organizers will be looking into the possibility of rescheduling.

    The ALHFAM Board is also monitoring any situation that may impact the ALHFAM Annual Meeting and Conference scheduled for June. We know that our ALHFAMily is looking forward to gathering in Boston for our 50th Anniversary, and many of you have registered  to date.  The current plan is to proceed as scheduled, but we are in regular communication with the conference planning committee, who will be taking direction from host venues and public health authorities. We will provide timely updates to our membership as information becomes available. 

    I know that many of you will be dealing with this evolving situation at your own sites. The American Alliance of Museums has provided access to resources on COVID-19 on their website, which you can access here. The ALHFAM-L listserv and social media outlets also provide a means of staying in touch with your colleagues.

    Keep well,

    Susan Reckseidler
    President, ALHFAM
