Below are three videos that comprise the Ready or Not... session from the VAM 2012 Annual Conference. The speakers were Mike Henry, Site Administrator, Fairfax County Park Authority; Tracy Gillespie, Historic Site Supervisor, Aldie Mill Historical Park / Mt. Zion Historical Park/ Gilbert's Corner Regional Park: Properties of Northern Virginia Regional Park Authority; Scott Harris, Director, James Monroe Museum; Doug Harvey, Director, Lynchburg Museum System; Robin Reed, Executive Director, National D-Day Memorial Museum.
The session description goes a little something like this: Change is a constant. Managing change in new situations and positions requires skill, flexibility and adaptability. Panel members (no strangers to change) will share what new challenges they encountered and what lessons they learned as they managed the mutable aspects of museum careers. Thinking about a job change or maybe heading in a new direction? This session will help you get ready.
We hope you enjoy this little freebie from #VAM2012. We hope you consider joining us for #VAM2013 at The Homestead, where we'll all be treated to a room rate of just $95 a night! We can't wait! :)
