The California Association of Museums (CAM) will present its 2013 CAMMY Award to the Getty Leadership Institute at Claremont Graduate University. The award recognizes extraordinary museum supporters, professionals, and institutions that have made outstanding contributions to California museums.
CAM selected the Getty Leadership Institute for the award for its "contributions to the museum field" and for "cultivating thoughtful museum leaders through the Museum Management Institute."
The Getty Leadership Institute (GLI) provides educational opportunities to enhance the leadership of experienced museum professionals and strengthen institutional capabilities. Since its inception in 1979, GLI's Museum Leadership Institute has served over 1,100 museum professionals from the United States and 30 other countries. In addition, since 2004, over 150 museum professionals have completed another program titled NextGen, which is dedicated to developing the leadership abilities of mid-level staff.
The award will be presented during the 2013 CAM conference in Santa Barbara on Feb. 20.
