2021 has been another challenging year for the museum sector. It’s good to see most of our clients are open to the public once more, and we hope that 2022 allows us to travel more freely for training and conference trips.
We would like to extend a warm welcome to all the new collections who have chosen this year to get started with Vernon CMS.
We wish you a Happy New Year and we are looking forward to doing great things together in 2022.
Vernon CMS online user group meeting
For the second year, we ran our Australasian Vernon User Group meeting as an online event. We had over 100 attendees, and it was fantastic to see people from many remote locations.
We are now editing the videos from the sessions. The company update session is first to be edited and uploaded to our YouTube channel, and the remaining sessions will be available in the New Year.
