My Profile


We are pleased to share this 2019 Annual Report. By the time you read this in 2020, however, New York’s museums and MANY will look very different than we did at the end of 2019. In these uncertain times, no one knows what challenges our museum community may face in a week, a month, or a year. But we have faith that as New Yorkers with common missions and goals we can support each other, share resources, and make it through together. MANY is stronger and more deeply connected than ever before and we will be here to help our museums survive and thrive. At the end of 2019 we had 642 members from every region, budget size, and discipline and closed the year in a positive financial position. We are proud of the opportunities that we created for museum professionals to gather, to learn, and to grow their professional networks. This annual report details that growth and reach.

2018 was a banner year for MANY and we have many people to thank for that. We provided opportunities for museum professionals to meet, to learn, and to support each other with our annual conference, "Visioning Change," professional development workshops, and Meet-Ups.

Thank you to the 23 museums that hosted MANY programs around the State!

In January, we launched our new website that has allowed us to tighten financial controls and improve how we communicate with our members. In May, we premiered "This Month in NYS Museums," a new e-newsletter that focuses on our shared interests in strengthening our resources, building our relationships with our communities, and growing access to our collections and exhibitions.
