Celebrating 40 Years!

Since the first National Docent Symposium in 1981, the National Docent Symposium Council has served as a resource and forum to promote docent education and the exchange of ideas. Join us as we celebrate our 40th anniversary with a series of articles discussing our past, present and future!  Read here an interview with Doug McTavish, who has taken on a new role as a SPARK and a photographer at the Burke Museum in Seattle, WA.  Renee Reese, former "Picture Lady" and now a docent at the MInt Museum in Charlotte, NC, talks about adjusting to new philosophies and using technology, and helping to get this website up and running!  Read her story here.
