Keep the Exchange Alive!

Keep the Exchange Alive!

Madelyn in Action NDS

The 20th biennial National Docent Symposium in Washington, D.C. was a resounding success thanks to the Smithsonian’s Freer|Sackler Galleries of Asian Art and the entire NDS2019 team!  

Now we ask you to join us in our very first fundraising campaign.  Our goal is to raise $20,000 by the end of this year to “keep the exchange alive," plan future symposia and replenish our education grant fund.  Will you help us reach our goal?

We work constantly to “keep the exchange alive” for YOU!  Check out a few examples of our impact:

If you have found the Symposium energizing, if the Symposium experience and the resources provided freely on this website have helped you, if you feel good about making new friends within the larger docent/guide community, we repeat our question to you… will you help us reach our goal

Current and retired Council members have endorsed the campaign by donating or pledging over $6,000 during our pre-launch.   As you consider your year-end giving please visit our donor page.   Every gift helps and is greatly appreciated.

Madelyn Mayberry, President, National Docent Symposium Council
