The annual Museum Computer Network (MCN) conference brings together a community of museum professionals interested in using technology to improve their organizations and enhance the visitor experience. It is not a conference purely for technologists - it's for anyone who wants to explore exciting opportunities, and tackle the unique challenges, associated with using technology in museums. This year's theme emphasizes the growing effort among our community to encourage a culture of innovation, agility and collaboration in their organizations. We know that making technology work for museums requires a pan-organizational approach and we want to help spread the latest knowledge and best practice to leaders, technologists, educators, curators, archivists, marketers and others so teams can work more effectively together. Whether you are a seasoned technology professional, high-level manager, or just want to be more familiar with industry trends, the MCN 2011 conference program has something for everyone. The conference will not only broaden your skills and your perspective on museum technology, it is also the perfect place to meet leaders in the field and join a generous community willing to help you get to that next step.
