PIC Green Network
Establishing museums as leaders in environmental stewardship and sustainability through education, advocacy, and service. This volunteer group is committed to sustaining a network of people who want to advance, learn from and highlight museum greening projects.
The committee holds the philosophy that a museum’s role in the community includes being a conduit for information and building awareness of issues that impact our world today. PIC Green’s focus is to explore and articulate green practices as fundamental underpinnings to all museum missions with a potential triple net effect encompassing economic, social and environmental issues, internally and externally.

- Evolve the organizational structure to integrate with AAM increased effectiveness within the association.
