Museum Governance (CMS 23-03)
Monday, November 6, 2023
— Monday, December 4, 2023
As legally constituted organizations, museums must define their governing authorities and public trust responsibilities to make the most effective possible contribution to the communities they serve with the resources available to them. Topics covered will include the governing documents required to establish and run a museum, the accountability and responsibilities of a museum’s governing authority, and exploration into policy and mission statement development.
This self-paced, module-based, combined asynchronous and synchronous course will run on the AMA’s virtual learning platform from November 6 to December 4, 2023. The course includes four required live, virtual meetings.
**The required virtual meetings will take place on November 9, 16, 23, and 30, 2023, from 10:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m.**
CMS courses are open to everyone; AMA membership is not required. There are no pre-requisites for the program.
