SHA is the Optimal Learning Environment

Today, as Museum Minute continues 11 posts in 11 days from the SHA Class of 2011, Kyle McKoy, Director at the Arizona Historical Society Museum at Papago Park, shares why you should attend the Seminar for Historical Administration.

The optimal learning environment for many people is one in which industry leaders come together to discuss common issues. Lively and opinionated discussions that lead to collegial problem-solving are invigorating exercises that allow anyone to hone critical-thinking skills. Interacting with colleagues from SHA, in an environment free from day-to-day distractions, is inspirational. SHA is place you can meet with, and learn from, dedicated professionals from around the country to find solutions to shared issues facing our institutions and the history field as a whole. SHA was the most challenging and rewarding experience of my career.

Thanks, Kyle!
