Leading Museums, Museum Leaders


CAMD meetings provide:

  • a forum for the sharing of professional information between members
  • a platform for invited speakers addressing critical professional and sector issues
  • an opportunity to develop collaborative museum projects and
  • an occasion to consider campaigns to promote the social, scientific, creative and economic benefits of the museum domain to the community.

Meetings are held at least twice a year at each member museum in rotation.  Every second year CAMD undertakes to hold one meeting at the site of a New Zealand member’s institution.

The CAMD General Meeting is held in March/April each year.

The CAMD Annual General Meeting is held in September/October each year.

Between general meetings, CAMD’s Executive meets to manage the more immediate business of the Council.

The dates of forthcoming meetings will be publicised as news items on this site.
