Sustaining Museums for Future Climate– OMA 2024 Conference
April 13 @ 9:00 am – April 15 @ 4:30 pm
The Ohio Museums Association will hold its 2024 annual conference, ‘Sustaining Museums for Future Climates,’ April 13-15, 2024 in Sandusky.
In so many areas of our regular life the climates are changing from what was usual in the past. In the museum world, sustainability and shifts in climates are happening too, and encompass a broad range of topics and impacts.
Of course, museums think about sustainability regarding their environmental impact, but also in terms of financial sustainability, the changing climate of visitor and donor behavior, sustaining and supporting the workforce, the future of grant and foundation support, shifting volunteer demographics, changing trends in tourism, and more – all while sustaining and staying true to their mission.
Museums across Ohio are tackling the many facets of sustainability so they can remain strong, vibrant, and essential community cornerstones no matter what future climates bring.
The conference will include tours to 17 area museums; two hands-on workshops; an opening meet-and-greet reception; the annual OMA awards dinner; the annual business meeting; a keynote address by best-selling author and Principal of Spectrum Nonprofit Services, Steve Zimmerman; 16 concurrent sessions – including a hands-on workshop with keynote speaker, Steve Zimmerman; an exhibit hall with museum service providers from across the state and region; and networking with peers from museums across Ohio.

This conference is sponsored by Ohio Humanities.
