AAO Announces Exhibition Sharing Committee

During the 2018 Design Matters Conference in Seattle this past November, a number of long-time AAO members voiced their interest in establishing an ad hoc committee to exchange timely updates and information concerning traveling exhibitions suitable for display at AAO member sites.

We are now taking RSVPs to participate in our kick-off meeting in late February. (Registration is open to current AAO members only.) Learn more and RSVP.
