The Philadelphia Emerging Museum Professionals is a group for museum/arts related staff and enthusiasts living in the Greater Philadelphia area. A regional branch of the national Emerging Museum Professionals (EMP) with the American Alliance of Museums (AAM), we facilitate social and professional opportunities for those in their first decade of a museum career. Our goal is to to create a participatory organization of museum professionals who, through dialogue, community action and innovation, work together to shape the future of the museum field.
The Philly EMP website is designed to assist emerging museum professionals with career development, planning, advancement, and guidance. This website features an ever-growing list of resources, a variety of fun and informative events, a board dedicated to improving your experience as an EMP, and weekly blog posts to keep you up-to-date on the latest innovations and ideas in the field.
If you have any questions that cannot be answered on the website, or if you would like to contribute to our blog, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
