Professional Practices in Art Museums
Professional Practices in Art Museums was first published by the Association of Art Museum Directors (AAMD) in 1971 and has been revised every ten years thereafter. Museum directors and others responsible for museum governance are urged to review carefully and be guided by the professional principles outlined herein. This edition of Professional Practices in Art Museums represents a multi-year effort on the part of the AAMD to revise and update the 2001 edition.
The Association of Art Museum Directors advances the profession by cultivating leadership capabilities of directors, advocating for the field, and fostering excellence in art museums. An agile, issues-driven organization, AAMD has three desired outcomes: engagement, leadership, and shared learning.
