Newsletter 10/2017

Just like autumn leaves in the wind...

...the last month has flown by in a flash!

NEMO's 25th Annual Conference is less than a month away and we are looking forward to seeing many of you there!

Together with its partner We Are Museums, NEMO held its 8th International Training Course. A thank you to Eva Koppen of our member the AEJM - Association of European Jewish Museums - for the wonderful report. Interested in NEMO Trainings? Stay connected for more to come!

Last but not least, NEMO would like to draw special attention to the public consultation for the PSI Directive which is open until 12 December 2017. We encourage you to submit responses to the consultation to make the voice of museums heard on this important matter and invite you to use NEMO's responses for orientation.

In the next issue of our newsletter, we'll let you leave through the report from our annual conference and hope you will share your impressions and takeaways.

Happy reading and see you in Ghent!
