Virtual Members-Only Programs
Join Strawbery Banke Museum staff as they share their passion and expertise on a variety of topics. Each program is hosted via Zoom and preregistration is required. A promo code is needed to unlock member registration, which is included in weekly member emails. Not receiving weekly member emails or have additional questions? Contact the Membership office via membership[at] 

All attendees are asked to be on mute with cameras disabled and are encouraged to ask questions utilizing the chat feature. At the end of each program, there will be an optional opportunity for members to turn on cameras and mics to socialize and network with other museum members. 

Zoom has a capacity of 100 attendees for each event and registration is on a first-come, first-serve basis. Each virtual program will be recorded and sent to museum members in future member emails/e-newsletters or upon request.
