Our Commitment to Supporting Docents and Guides

For 40 years the National Docent Symposium Council (NDSC) has provided a forum for learning and the exchange of ideas for docents and guides in North America. We recognize and value the dedication and skill that docents bring to their role as volunteer educators. The NDSC celebrates and honors docents’ contributions to their institutions. Our biennial symposium is host to a wide range of cultural institutions and will come together in Kansas City in September 2022 to participate in an ongoing dialogue about the role and mission of docents. Through the National Docent Symposium and multiple online platforms, docents, guides and museum educators will continue working together to craft best practices in leadership, learning and public engagement.
