2020 Smithsonian Affiliations National Conference

Due to the continued spread of COVID-19 and guidelines from the Smithsonian Institution and CDC, Smithsonian Affiliations has made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Smithsonian Affiliations National Conference previously scheduled for June 28-30, 2020, in Washington, D.C.
The Smithsonian Affiliations team is exploring new ways to share conference content as a series of engaging, digital events. As we all navigate new ways of working, we hope a series of digital sessions, spread out over several weeks or months, will help us all continue to stay connected and learn from each other.

Please make sure you are signed up to receive the Affiliate e-newsletter to receive the latest updates on how we will present conference content digitally. We will also continue to share resources and opportunities from the Smithsonian and Affiliates. If you have suggestions on content or ways in which we might present our conference series in a digital format, please contact us.

The Smithsonian Affiliations National Conference is for current Smithsonian Affiliates and Smithsonian staff members only. If you are interested in learning more about a Smithsonian Affiliation, please contact us.
