Pulszky Society – Hungarian Museum Association
The professional non-governmental organisation of Hungarian museum workers was founded in 1989-1990 by acclaimed museum professionals. Its main aim has always been to formulate and represent the interests of the national cultural heritage preserved and utilized in the museums and those who currently work in this field. Today, the association has over 500 members from all parts of the country.  The Pulszky Society has been present in most of the decision-making processes and closely works with new laws and regulations in connection with cultural heritage and the museum field. Its governing body consists of 21 elected members, who elect the seven members of the presidium. Sections in different fields (small museums, conservation and preservation, etc.) have also been formed in order to organize conferences, workshops and to keep professionals in contact.
