Regional, Remote and Community Museums Day

As part of Museums Australia National Conference, a pre-conference specialised day for Regional, Remote and Community Museums (RR&CM Day) will be held on Thursday 21 May 2015.
The main focus of the RR&CM Day is practical training for volunteers who work in regional, remote and community museums, the program is supported by the Federal Government through the provision of bursaries to eligible delegates.
Delegate numbers for the RR&CM Day are limited. Places are allocated according to the delegates eligibility rather than on a first come basis. Delegates wishing to participate in the RR&CM Day program should record their expression of interest when registering for the conference.
Where the RR&CM Day program is oversubscribed places will be allocated 6 weeks prior to the conference.
