Digital Credential Program


Program Deadlines

Sign up: October 6, 2017

Form Completion: November 1, 2017

What?

MPMA offers a Digital Credential, or Digital Badge, to support professional development in the museum field. Those meeting the eligibility criteria have an opportunity to earn and display badges in recognition of their engagement and accomplishments with MPMA. When you earn, display, and share badges, you will receive attention from the museum community about your professional experiences.

Why?

Collecting Digital Credentials or Badges shows accomplishments in one's area of interest.  These badges can be shared across social media platforms, blogs, and resumes. 

Badges can be used to impress colleagues and future employers. 

Badges can be collected for committee work, sessions and workshops attended.

Digital credentials are becoming widely recognized and trusted in many industries as a way to showcase qualifications and provide evidence of certifications.​​​​​​​​​

How?

For a small $15 fee, participants who attend a minimum of eight hours in a specific subject area at MPMA's Annual Conference can be awarded a digital credential (or badge). 

Sign up with your conference registration to receive the necessary forms and earn your badge.

Most workshops and sessions are already coded for their specific focus areas.
