Virginia museum staff began getting together once a year in the late 1950's to share expertise, exchange exhibits and collaborate on programs. As the group grew, it began to expand its activities - a Civil War Centennial Celebration, a magazine, and additional meetings during the year for training and networking. The group formalized by incorporating as the Virginia History Federation in 1968 to promote and support Virginia's historical museums and sites; it was granted 501 (c) 3 status by the IRS in 1969. In 1978, the name was changed to the Virginia History and Museums Federation to reflect the broadening of its mission to include all museum disciplines. The name was changed once more, in 1980, to the Virginia Association of Museums (VAM) to further establish its identity as an organization whose purpose is education and support for all museums and similar cultural institutions in the Commonwealth.
