Today our New York Parks and Trails Partnership Program intern, Derrick Pratt, is back from the #aaslh
Annual Meeting in Austin, Texas. Derrick was able to attend thanks to the AASLH's Small Museum scholarship and generous donations from Chittenango Rotary Club, Chet and Kathy Williams, and Pamela Vittorio. At the conference Derrick learned about how to make our museum a cutting edge organization that will engage our community and keep us relevant for the 21st century. He met great people from museums all over the nation, like the Museum of South Texas History and Baker Heritage Museum in Oregon. He also just had a great time experiencing Texas' culture and unique atmosphere with his fellow museum professionals! If you'd like to hear more about his trip come to the museum Wednesday Sept. 13 at 10am for #coffeewithfriends
Derrick will be giving a presentation on what he did and learned in Austin.
