We hope your museum or heritage organization will be part of the inaugural year of New York State Museum Week 2012! Promoted by State Senator Betty Little and organized by I LOVE NY with assistance from MANY, this event is meant to publicize the state's cultural/heritage community to residents. More than 150 museums of all types have already signed up to participate. To add your institution to the roster, contact Kelly Rabideau at I LOVE NY:firstname.lastname@example.org. I LOVE NY will need the following information: contact name, contact email, contact phone number, organization email and your organization’s web site url (to hyperlink from iloveny.com). By participating you agree to place a banner ad on your website or in your newsletter that links to information about the program at www.iloveny.com/museumweek . Participants are being asked to tie suitable existing programming for May 31st – June 6th into the overall New York State Museum Week 2012 promotion by listing activities on their own web pages. I LOVE NY suggests considering enhancing your existing programming with special offers, events, discounts, contests, drawings, etc.
