Museums, Change and Our Future

Lane County Historical Society and Museum is pleased to announce a special program to be held at 2:00 PM, Saturday, February 21st, at the museum. The distinguished speaker is futurist David Pearce Snyder, strategic forecaster and life styles editor, The Futurist. How do museums fit in a future of accelerating economic change and new technology? What role might they play in the ever more competitive battle for relevance on a planet drowning in electronic access and decreasing attention spans?

David Pearce Snyder has appeared on NIGHTLINE, the TODAY SHOW, CNN and MSNBC. He is a co-author of two books on the future of the U.S., Future Forces (1984) and America in the 1990s (1992) and numerous articles and reports. His business clients have included the Institute for Museum and Library Services, American Association of School Administrators, American Express, Marriott Executive Seminar, National Restaurant Association, NASA, BLM, and the League of California Cities.

The program is expected to last for approximately 45 minutes. A question and answer period will follow the presentation, after which light refreshments will be served. Admission to the Museum will be free for this program.
