Diversity Sessions Featured at 2010 TAM Annual Meeting

One of the roles of the MIC is to ensure that adequate attention and time are give to diversity issues at the Texas Association of Museums Annual Meetings. This summer, the MIC submitted four session proposals for the 2010 meeting. I am pleased to announce that two of them have been accepted in their entirety. These are titled "Opening Doors to Inclusiveness" and "Out of the Closet: A Community History Comes to Light." Unfortunately, the other two sessions did not make the cut. Considering that the program committee has the tough task of narrowing the proposals submitted to about half, we are fortunate that half of our submitted sessions were selected.

If you are planning to attend the 2010 TAM Annual Meeting in College Station, be on the lookout for these and other great sessions!

As more details are released about the annual meeting and the sessions, we will update the blog.
