The CIMA (Congres International des Musees d’Agricole) is a triennial event in the AIMA calendar.
AIMA promotes research and encourages collaboration among professionals working in agriculture and rural museums around the world. AIMA members meet every three years in an international congress to discuss opportunities and challenges that affect museum operations. The conferences include formal sessions, tours of museums and heritage sites, workshops and networking opportunities. The conference host, often a national agriculture museum, publishes the proceedings as a permanent record of the intellectual content of the congress.
(See the proceedings of past conferences (CIMA and AMA))
The CIMA is also the venue for the General Assembly, in which the officers of the AIMA are elected for a three year term by the members.
Below is a list of past congress locations and accompanying records (when they are available).
