These levels of membership are named for ASM's first-century directors, giants in the field with huge and impactful legacies. Their commitment to excellence inspires us still.
At these levels, your annual membership support will go directly to the Director’s Fund for Excellence, strengthening our current director's ability to support projects that are central to the museum’s mission but not funded by the state, by grants, or by restricted donations.
