Our membership to NAI has helped connect us to the larger world of interpretation. We can learn a lot from interpretive organizations outside the museum realm like zoos, aquariums, parks, and nature centers, and this helps us push the boundaries of traditional museum models.

NAI opened the Lemur Center up to new methods, training, and development opportunities to advance our interpreters in their field while creating a better experience for visitors.

NAI has served as a wonderful resource to help expand our team members' knowledge and experience level in the fields of interpretation, management, planning, and design. We also feel it is critical for our team to engage and interact with fellow peers in the field--allowing the networking and cross-polination of knowledge and experience to take place.
