LEWISTON - Maine Archives and Museums (MAM) recently held its quarterly board meeting at Museum L-A. The organization serves as a network for Maine institutions and individuals who identify, collect, interpret, and/or provide access to materials relating to history, living collections, and culture. "Museum L-A is pleased to have hosted this meeting," said Rachel Desgrosseilliers, Museum L-A's executive director. "It gave a chance for museums and historical societies in this area to hear first-hand what MAM can do for them."

Each quarter the full Board of Directors meets at different locations around the state to provide an opportunity to hear from local organizations and guest attendees. MAM offers local and regional workshops for historical society and museum professionals, staff, and volunteers. Its Annual Conference is a place to gather with others with similar interests in Maine history, living collections, and culture to share ideas, network, and review and acquire the skills to manage our state's cultural resources. This year's conference is scheduled for Friday, October 28 at the Newport Cultural Center. A 21st-Century Skills Workshop co-hosted by Maine Historical Society and MAM will take place at the same location the day before: Thursday, October 27. Membership in MAM is open to institutions and individuals. The next MAM board meeting will be held on Oct. 28 at the conference site. Guests are welcome.
