Message From the Executive Director

We need to band together to continually speak up for the value of our contributions to culture and visual history so it changes perceptions among clients and the public. To do that we need to express ourselves clearly and frequently about our passion and the meaning of the work generated by that passion.

I love this quote from William Glasser as being relevant: 'If you want to change attitudes, start with a change in behavior'.

  — Tom Kennedy, ASMP Executive Director
