The Canadian Museum Association Awards Anita Price the 2022 President’s Medal


On Wednesday, June 29, former ANSM Executive Director Anita Price received the President’s Medal from the Canadian Museums Association (CMA). The medal, which recognizes exceptional contributions to the museum sector across the country, was awarded to Anita at a virtual ceremony Wednesday Afternoon.

Throughout her  12 years with ANSM, Anita worked tirelessly to ensure that museums throughout Nova Scotia received the services and resources that they need to thrive. Upon her retirement, she has left the association and all of its member museums in a strong and optimistic position for the future, despite the many obstacles facing heritage organizations today.

Anita’s leadership has made Nova Scotia a shining example for museum associations and heritage sectors across the country and beyond. Luckily for the rest of Canada, she has brought the same energy to her involvement with museum advocacy on a national level. Her impact on museums, their workers, communities, and patrons is meaningful, lasting, and deserving of recognition. ANSM congratulates her on                                                                               her receipt of this award—it is a well-earned honour!
