Museums Advocacy Day (MAD) 2020, February 24-25, 2020
Washington, D.C.

Museums Advocacy Day is a unique opportunity to join with fellow museum professionals and supporters to make the case for museums. Join the OMA leadership in taking the collective Oklahoma museum voice to Capitol Hill. Come walk the halls of congress with us and let our House and Senate members know how important museums are to the economy, education, quality of life, and more!

Together as a field, we have defeated several threats to eliminate federal agencies supporting museums, but we must keep making our case to Congress. Legislators do not know how their decisions affect museums if they do not hear directly from you-the museums and people they represent. The resources and insights you will gain as a participant will help sustain your museum's future and the future of the field. Join us February 24-25 on Capitol Hill and be a part of our collective movement.

OMA is a proud partner in Museums Advocacy Day and as such, all OMA members can register at the special registration rate of $49 for Museums Advocacy Day.  Please use the code 20OMA when registering.

We must remain vigilant in the continued battle for federal resources. We need our Oklahoma advocates to engage with their legislators each year to ensure they are well informed on the issues vital to Oklahoma museums.

Join the OMA leadership as they visit Capitol Hill and the Oklahoma Congressional Delegation. Good news about flights to Washington D.C., Southwest Airlines now offers a direct flight to Reagan National Airport from Oklahoma City, and at last check, they were a reasonable rate.
