10th US/ICOMOS International Symposium
San Francisco, CA
Balancing Culture, Conservation, and Economic Development:
Heritage Tourism in and around the Pacific Rim
US/ICOMOS welcomes abstracts from and about all geographic areas. Full attention will be given to all abstracts. We tried to make clear in the Call for Papers that heritage tourism is a global phenomenon but that the Pacific Rim countries offer an intriguing perspective. Experiences that occur in the Pacific Rim also occur in other places and we hope to illustrate the themes with the abstracts that describe them best. Basically we are looking for the best speakers and the most relevant topics. The idea behind highlighting the Pacific Rim was to distinguish the theme of the conference but not to limit it.

AAM Annual Meeting and MuseumExpo™2007
Lakeside Center, McCormick Place
Meeting Theme: Why Museums Matter
For our 2007 Annual Meeting in Chicago, we invite the field to submit proposals that demonstrate how you measure and communicate your value--educational, social, creative, financial--in your communities. What research do you undertake to measure the results of what you do? What communications strategies work to convey to supporters the value of your efforts? How do you adjust your messages for your various audiences?
