Attending and participating in the PACCIN Conference this month allowed me to take in many fantastic insights and perspectives, but one thing was driven home for me more than any other…We as a community need to start working on pushing forward and evolving how we build our teams and manage our processes.  Expectations are changing with each generation and we need to find ways to build our profession into a career and not just a stepping stone to another part of the museum world.  We need to participate more in all aspects of the planning processes in our organizations and elevate our positions past the perception that we are simply a tool.  This episode is about asking for what we want and expanding our options for the future.
