Committee on Audience Research and Evaluation (CARE)

The Committee on Audience Research and Evaluation (CARE) provides a forum for museum professionals who believe that understanding the visitor is an essential part of museum planning and operation, and disseminates information about systematic research and evaluation pertaining to museum audiences.

Awards and Fellowships

The annual Excellence in Exhibition Competition recognizes outstanding achievement in the exhibition format from all types of museums, zoos, aquariums, botanical gardens and any other types of noncommercial institutions offering exhibitions to the public. The competition is the joint project of the following Alliance Professional Networks (PNs): Curators Committee (CurCom), the National Association for Museum Exhibition (NAME), the Committee on Audience Research and Evaluation (CARE) and the Education Committee (EdCom).

Fellowships are available for CARE members to attend the Alliance's Annual Meeting. The award covers basic conference registration, invitation to the Fellowship Breakfast, tickets to attend certain networking events and a travel stipend.
