FAMDA was organized to promote the development of a scholarly and creative role for Florida visual arts museums and their directors in the cultural life of the State of Florida and to apply its members' knowledge and experience in the field of art to the promotion of the public good; to encourage communication among visual arts museums and their directors; and to promulgate both a Code of Ethics as to the profession of visual arts museum directors and Standards as to the conduct by art museums of their affairs.
Regular activities of FAMDA and its member institutions include ongoing exhibition and collections exchanges, co-sponsorships of museum and museum-related professional development activities throughout the state, and service to the Florida Arts Council and DCA through representation on task forces and grant application review panels. There are 51 art museums and art centers that are members of FAMDA. Accreditation by the American Association of Museums is stressed as a goal and half of FAMDA’s members have achieved this distinguished professional status.
