About the OMA Conference: 

This year's OMA Conference theme Collaborating for Impact examines how museums can more effectively and efficiently serve the public through the establishment of dynamic and innovative partnerships with a variety of different actors both within and outside of the sector, including but not limited to: government, other cultural institutions, education, individuals, and non-profits.
