emp-buttonsCincinnati Emerging Museum Professionals seeks to connect and support museum professionals in southwest Ohio through social engagement, networking, and professional development.

What Is an Emerging Museum Professional?

The word “emerging” is subjective and means different things to different people. It can not be defined by a length of time, level of education, or title. As long as you are looking to move onward and upward, you can consider yourself as “emerging,” even if you have been in the field 15 years. If you are exactly where you want to be and aren’t seeking further advancement in your career, then you are no longer “emerging” and can now be considered an established professional. 

Cincy EMP is an inclusive network that welcomes all Emerging Museum Professionals, whatever the word might mean for you.
