AMA Recognition

The Loyal Edmonton Regiment Military Museum is proud to announce it has been fully accredited by the Alberta Museums Association’s Recognized Museum Program.

The Recognized Museum Program is an accreditation program for museums in Alberta. The program evaluates whether or not Institutional Members of the Alberta Museums Association (AMA) are operating as museums according to the AMA’s member-approved Definition of a Museum:

A museum is a non-profit making, permanent institution in the service of society and of its development, and open to the public which acquires, conserves, researches, communicates and exhibits, for purposes of study, education and enjoyment, material evidence of people and their environment.

The entire museum community benefits from a process that helps to ensure that member museums develop or reaffirm their understanding of what museums are and what their responsibilities are to the public trust.  This sends a clear message to our communities, supporters, politicians, donors, and funders that they can have confidence and pride in Recognized Museums as organizations worthy of their support.

All applicants to the Recognized Museum Program benefit from access to the AMA’s programs and services.  Museum staff, volunteers, and board members know that they are part of a community of museums and museum professionals that share common standards, ethics, and commitment to continuous learning and to community engagement.

A lot of work went into the application process and a special thank you is due to all the board members, staff and volunteers who contributed.
