MUSEUM OF THE AMERICAN MILITARY FAMILY & LEARNING CENTER (MAMF) TO PARTICIPATE IN COLLECTIONS ASSESSMENT FOR PRESERVATION PROGRAM

TIJERAS–  MAMF announces that it is one of 80 institutions from across the country selected to participate in the the Collections Assessment for Preservation (CAP) program.

CAP helps museums improve the care of their collections by providing support for a conservation assessment of the museum’s collections and buildings. The museum will work with a team of preservation professionals to identify preventive conservation priorities. The final assessment report will help the museum prioritize its collections care efforts in the coming years.

MAMF Founder and Director, Dr. Circe Olson Woessner said, “As a fairly new museum with a large, diverse collection of artifacts, we want to ensure that we are doing the best we can to preserve the history of America’s military families. As we continue to grow and evolve, we want to ensure our museum upholds high standards.”

“Simply by applying for the CAP program, the Museum of the American Military Family & Learning Center has shown a commitment to preserving cultural heritage,” said Tiffani Emig, Programs Director for FAIC.

The CAP program is administered by FAIC through a cooperative agreement with the Institute of Museum and Library Services, a federal grant making agency that supports museums and libraries.

TV Show seeks Brats

We are casting a new series for a major cable network about young people whose parents are in the military. It’s tough enough being a young person today but we know that military kids face unique challenges – and also have amazing opportunities – because of the lives they lead.
