Museums Association of Saskatchewan

The Museums Association of Saskatchewan is a non-profit, collective organization, representing more than 240 institutional members, and an additional 200 individual members. It is governed by a member-elected Board of Directors representative of the museum community.

MAS’s purpose is to serve museums in Saskatchewan and work for their advancement. Membership is open to everyone. MAS provides educational opportunities for museums and personnel, and their governing bodies, and is responsible for establishing the first Standards for Museums that now guide museum development across the country.

MAS raises public awareness of museums and fosters communication among members of the museum community. It also represents the interests and concerns of the museum community to governments and other agencies.

MAS promotes its activities, and those of its members, through a twice-monthly e-newsletter called E-Phemera; a feature publication, issued twice a month called The Megaphone; and its website.
