Membership Committee
About the Membership Committee

The Membership Committee is concerned with assuring that the body of AAMC members is inclusive, fair and representative of the broad scope of art curators working in the US and internationally in the non-profit communities. It is the goal of the Committee that the organization be representative of diversity: across self-identifications (by nation, gender, creed, race), fields of expertise, types of institutional mission, and regional position. Art curators working in the non-profit sector, either within a Museum, art organization, or other model of institution, and independent curators, from around the globe are welcome to apply for membership. Responsibilities include:

  • Approve eligible curators that are not strictly at a non-profit arts organization full or part time
  • Identify appropriate individuals for membership
  • Recruit new and renew lapsed members
  • Bring issues of the membership to the Executive Director and AAMC & AAMC Foundation leadership
