SEMC proudly announces the 20th annual Jekyll Island Management Institute (JIMI 2019). Scheduled for January 21-28, 2020, JIMI is specifically designed for administrators from new and emerging museums and for museum professionals with subject area expertise desiring knowledge of general museum administration and operations.
Located on historic Jekyll Island, GA, this highly successful training program provides a unique eight-day immersion for museum professionals seeking the opportunity to learn management, personnel and interpretive skills from leading experts. Sessions include management styles, administration and trusteeship, strategic planning, fundraising and marketing, technology, developing exhibits, public relations, collections management, disaster preparedness, interpretation, volunteer management, and museum ethics.
Scholarships, including the Peter LaPaglia Scholarship, are available. Thanks to the generosity of the Smithsonian's National Museum of African American History and Culture (NMAAHC), SEMC is also pleased to offer the John Kinard Scholarship Fund for two staff members of AAAM institutional museums or individual AAAM members to attend JIMI 2020.
