BAFM Conference and AGM
The day will explore the relationships between Museums and their Friends’ organisations, against a background of a trend for museums to set up their own membership schemes.
The first keynote speech ‘How to develop enduring Friendships’, will address the wellbeing benefits of volunteering and the significant influence volunteers can have on the ‘feel’ of a place. The issue of relationships and ways of keeping channels clear, appreciative and constructive between Friends and their chosen Museums will be examined.
The second keynote presentation will explain the positive relationship between these two separate, but supportive, bodies, describing past successes and future challenges. In the afternoon there will be the BAFM AGM and short presentations on the conference theme by three other London Museums and a general ‘open forum’ discussion.
