What is SERA?

About

The Southeastern Registrars Association (SERA) is the affinity group for collections specialists in cultural institutions across the Southeastern United States. Founded in 1978, SERA encourages high standards of museum practice and fosters professional growth 

among museum registrars through the promotion, exchange, and dissemination of information and ideas via educational seminars, publications, and other means. SERA initiates and supports activities that create an atmosphere of cooperation among registrars, other museum professionals, and those in related service fields, and pursues further development of professional practices in the field.

If you would like to serve on the SERA board, please contact the Nominations Chair
