Member Benefits

Being a member of MAS or affiliated with a MAS member museum has its benefits!

  • Join regionally-based Networks to discuss issues and concerns
  • Join Learning Collectives to discuss specific museological fields and areas of interest
  • Reduced rates for MAS professional development opportunities
  • Timely information on funding opportunities, trends, current events and more



Networks are regionally-defined groupings of MAS member museums. Each is unique with its own individual identity and ways of working. Networks meet regularly to share information & ideas, discuss issues & concerns and work together on joint projects. Each network appoints a volunteer Network Representative to coordinate its activities and provide a liaison with MAS staff and board. Networks are a valuable member group within the Museums Association and have become an increasingly important vehicle for consultation for both MAS board and staff.

The key roles for the networks are:

  1. to facilitate communication between:
    - MAS board & staff and network members;
    - Networks;
    - museums within a network;
  2. to facilitate collective activities and projects within individual networks.


Learning Collectives

The Learning Collectives are member groups of the Museums Association of Saskatchewan and are an integral part of MAS’ education and professional development program.

A Learning Collective is a group of people involved in a particular area of practice, interest, or a specific museological field.  Learning Collectives facilitate individual and organizational development of the museum community by engaging in professional development activities, collegial and professional exchange, and other priorities as identified by the group members, such as advocacy and communication. These groups work together with MAS to further the advancement of museums throughout Saskatchewan.

This program is designed primarily, but not exclusively, for paid museum professionals who are mid-to-advanced career and work in mid-to-large sized museums.

Participant subsidies to attend discussion groups and reduced rates for professional development opportunities are available only for individuals who are MAS members or affiliated with a MAS member institution*.
