KMA exists for and because of our members. Museums across our state, across the country, and around the world have been impacted by COVID-19, and we want to know how best to help you. We are partnering with the Coalition of State Museum Associations to create short and long-term strategies to assist in strengthening Kansas museums. You can help by taking a brief survey regarding the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on your institution. Through these 12 questions we will glean valuable data to create specific programming and resources to better serve your needs as well as enhance our advocacy efforts.
Thank you for your time and participation!
