Anne-Marie Millner is the Manager, Content Management and Capacity Building for the Canadian Heritage Information Network (CHIN), a special operating agency of the Government of Canada’s Department of Canadian Heritage. She directs the professional development program for museum professionals, including information management, digital content creation, management and presentation. Her team provides products, services and guidelines for this purpose, such as: collections information, technology assessment, data and interoperability standards, professional development resources, online learning tutorials, access to experts and communities of practice. These resources are developed both in house, and through partnerships, with other heritage organizations.

Anne-Marie has worked for many years in the cultural sector, both in cultural industries and in new technologies. She represented McClelland and Stewart, the Canadian publisher, in Ontario and Quebec. While working as a full time as a manager for Chapters bookstores, she obtained a Master of Business Administration degree from the University of Ottawa, graduating in 2000. As part of her degree, she completed a special project on Government of Canada Internet sites. Following graduation, she joined the federal civil service as a Senior Policy Analyst for the Canadian Culture Online (CCO) strategy, which was formed to encourage a uniquely Canadian presence on the Internet. While at CCO, she was responsible for many projects and files, including: the development of policies on e-learning and cultural diversity, the creation of Aboriginal and ethno-cultural online initiatives, and the program guidelines for the New Media Research Networks Fund. Shortly before leaving CCO in 2006, Anne-Marie completed the Treasury Board submission that lead to the renewal of the Canadian Culture Online strategy.
