2021 NAAM Conference
Nov 16 @ 6:15 am – Nov 19 @ 9:00 pm

2021 NAAM Conference

Tuesday November 16th – Friday November 19th

One of the greatest challenges facing museums is growing our audiences and memberships to continue to see financial success and fulfill our missions as public trusts. For that reason, the 2021 NAAM Conference theme is Next Gen, a play on the recent reveal of the Next Generation Corvette, which was aimed to bring a new generation of owners to the Corvette brand. The conference’s goal is to provide attendees with tools to think beyond the way we currently approach our day to day and think outside the box towards what a new generation of guests and members will be looking for from our institutions. Sessions will focus on how our museums can serve new generations as educational institutions, digital opportunities for our collections, guest accessibility inside our museums, and opportunities that lead to unrelated business income. As always, our biggest conference goal is to encourage and facilitate idea and experience sharing among attendees.
NAAM Member – Entire Conference
Member, Spouse, or Speaker Registration by October 15,2021: $325.00

Non-Member – Entire Conference

Museum In Motion


The National Corvette Museum is unlike most other museums in the world. Though located in Bowling Green, Kentucky – the Museum is proud to have members from all across the country and even internationally. In an effort to bring the Museum to the enthusiasts, a selection of excursions are offered each year. Branded “Museum in Motion”, the program features tours around the United States as well as Canada, England and France. The Museum in Motion events combine the fun of driving, socializing with other Corvette enthusiasts, sightseeing and visiting unique places – including many V.I.P. and behind the scenes opportunities that only the Museum can get you.

Past tours have taken participants into places not usually accessible to the public including Milford Proving Grounds, Consumer Reports Auto Test Division, GM Heritage Center, and Pratt & Miller.

Poker Run – Friday 10/15

The original destination for this year’s Poker Run was the Harley-Davidson Factory in York, PA. However, due to ongoing COVID restrictions, factory plant tours have been temporarily cancelled, therefore the Friday Poker Run agenda has been changed. Thanks to the generosity of Lance Miller, we are excited to announce the Poker Run will now visit his Private Car Collection at his garage in Carlisle, PA. Afterwards, we will stop at the nearby US Army Heritage Center which houses a collection of exhibits both inside and outside focusing on conflicts over the years and the US Army role past and present. Numerous exhibits and equipment outside include tanks, helicopters, weapons and structures dating from the French and Indian War, through the World Wars, Korea and Vietnam. Please note that masks are currently required inside the Heritage Center.

 

Following the tours you are invited to have lunch (at your expense) at Duke’s Riverside restaurant, overlooking the Susquehanna River. Directions to the restaurant will be provided with your Poker Run packet.

Participants will pick cards for their Poker hand at several locations during the run. The prize for the best poker hand will be awarded at the Friday evening dinner. Estimated mileage for the event is 75 miles.

The Poker Run will start with a driver’s meeting at the AACA Museum parking lot on Friday at 8 am and will finish in plenty of time to relax before the Corvette Racing Dinner.

Tickets are $35 per person and limited to 60.

Poker Run – Friday 10/15

The original destination for this year’s Poker Run was the Harley-Davidson Factory in York, PA. However, due to ongoing COVID restrictions, factory plant tours have been temporarily cancelled, therefore the Friday Poker Run agenda has been changed. Thanks to the generosity of Lance Miller, we are excited to announce the Poker Run will now visit his Private Car Collection at his garage in Carlisle, PA. Afterwards, we will stop at the nearby US Army Heritage Center which houses a collection of exhibits both inside and outside focusing on conflicts over the years and the US Army role past and present. Numerous exhibits and equipment outside include tanks, helicopters, weapons and structures dating from the French and Indian War, through the World Wars, Korea and Vietnam. Please note that masks are currently required inside the Heritage Center.

 

Following the tours you are invited to have lunch (at your expense) at Duke’s Riverside restaurant, overlooking the Susquehanna River. Directions to the restaurant will be provided with your Poker Run packet.

Participants will pick cards for their Poker hand at several locations during the run. The prize for the best poker hand will be awarded at the Friday evening dinner. Estimated mileage for the event is 75 miles.

The Poker Run will start with a driver’s meeting at the AACA Museum parking lot on Friday at 8 am and will finish in plenty of time to relax before the Corvette Racing Dinner.

Tickets are $35 per person and limited to 60.
