News Briefs

CAM '99

Make plans to attend CAM '99 in Barbados from May 5-12, 1999. Details in the next Bulletin. Museums, Peace, Democracy and Governance in the 21st Century.

What are the conditions for Peace? Do our Museums help to create and maintain those conditions? How do Museums make a difference in a nation "already peaceful"? How do Museums make a difference in war-torn countries and unsettled societies? Can Museums promote Democracy? These are a few of the important questions to be discussed.

ICOM '98

The theme of ICOM '98 is Museums & Cultural Diversity - Ancient Cultures, New Worlds. The conference promises to feature some excellent speakers and some good dialogue with international colleagues. It is to be hoped that we will especially see many of our Asian and South Pacific colleagues who are often not able to attend ICOM. CAM encourages members to attend if at all possible and we will see you at our CAM dinner on Oct. 14!

The event previously scheduled for CAM members for the post-ICOM period will not be available. We regret to report that Monica Leahy, our member from the Migration Museum in Adelaide has moved back to teaching. We will miss her presence in museums but wish her much success and happiness in her new position. We do hope she will keep in touch with CAM friends.
