BAFM National Conference & AGM – October 2019
The BAFM AGM/Conference will be held on Saturday 12th and Sunday 13th October, 2019, at Reading Museum & Town Hall, Reading’s Abbey Quarter. The theme will be “Museum Friends & Community Engagement: Challenge & Opportunity”. 
BAFM’s local partners this time are the ‘Friends of Reading Museum (FoRM).
The Conference programme and speaker selection have been designed to explore the role of museum friends’ organisations in community engagement and the associated challenges and opportunities that this brings.
BAFM members support a range of different museums all over the country and we hope that the conference will appeal to its diverse membership.

FoRM chair Ann Middleton says “I am delighted that Friends of Reading Museum are hosting the 2019 BAFM AGM and conference and look forward to welcoming all delegates to Reading.”
