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! Join the community on the SEMC Emerging Museum Professional Facebook Page
