Hi everyone,I was asked to present about the Standards at the Museums Australia conference in Launceston today. The requirement was for a 3 minute talk. The text attached here is about 6.5 minutes. I cut it to 5 minutes for delivery but thought it would be better to share the slightly longer wording here.Best regards from a former Taskforce member.See More

Hi Margaret,

it's such a struggle to get on this thing at night after chasing kids around, but I'm finally here and it makes sense compared to the version I get at work.

Hi Margaret

it's Sarah-Jane Rennie here, thanks for keeping us in the loop re the IBSA thing, I'll try to have a look but as I'm on secondment in Scotland trying to keep everything moving along's a little difficult. It's great to know that you're part of that committee, a relief to know that someone's at the table representing all of us!

I couldn't find your current email address (which I'm sure I've got somewhere) so I thought I'd put a message on your wall as I'm hoping you're online. I met with some lovely people in Glasgow yesterday at St Mungo's museum. They're undertaking a large project at the moment in preparation for the Commonwealth Games. Part of the project is a conference in a couple of years for museums who've been involved in large sports events. I thought it would be good for them to be in contact with you as I'm sure your Museum has a lot to say about this. I also had a great meeting with the Scottish Football Museum and had a really interesting discussion about the relationship between Aussie Rules and soccer. I'd love to put them in touch with you as well.

If it's OK, would you be able to send through your contact details and I'll link all of you together.

If you're interested in what I'm up to over here I've been doing a bit of a blog thing which you can read here http://mgnsw.blogspot.com/

I haven't yet written up St Mungo's or the Football museum but they've both been doing a lot of interesting things around reminiscence and prejudice

Hope you're well and great to have seen you in Melbourne

Sarah-Jane
