MMA Online programs are held via Zoom and provide the opportunity to connect with others from the museums community and learn about resources. Programs include Colleague Chats, which are informal facilitated conversations around a specific topic,  Ask an Expert programs, during which experts give a brief presentation on a specific topic followed by the opportunity for Q&A from participants, and Business Member Spotlights, which provide MMA's business members a chance to share information about the services they offer to Michigan museums. All online programs are FREE for MMA members.
