The SEMC EMP group was started in October 2011 by SEMC members who recognized that people new to the museum field needed a better roadmap for career development and networking. This network is an informal group of museum professionals. Emerging Museum Professionals are museum staff/employees that have been in the field for 10 years or less.

If you are interested in this group, then you are in!
