Wednesday, July 31, 1 to 2:30 p.m. Eastern (login at 12:45 p.m.)  

You’re invited to the next FREE event from the AASLH Small Museums Online Community and the Visitors’ Voices Affinity Group!

Join us online and learn:

  • how to adapt a special event survey for your site in less than five minutes;
  • how to train volunteers to interview visitors; and
  • how to add questions to the basic survey template.

This webinar is designed for those who have rarely, if ever, conducted surveys with visitors at small museums and historic sites. By the end of the session, you’ll appreciate how this template gathers visitor feedback on many aspects of your organization.

Museum professionals who have used this template will be available to answer your questions: Anne Kennedy, past board member and volunteer of the Miami County Museum in Peru, Indiana and Matt Schuld, museum director of the Elkhart County Historical Society and Museum in Bristol, Indiana.

This Small Museum Online Community Event also features Conny Graft (Consultant, Conny Graft Research and Evaluation) and Stacy Klingler (Assistant Director, Local History Services, Indiana Historical Society). They are also co-authors of  the Small Museum Toolkit chapter, “In Lieu of Mind Reading: Visitor Studies and Evaluation.”
