Our colleagues at Museum Development East Midlands (MDEM) are offering places to trustees of museums in the West Midlands for this upcoming seminar.
In this bitesize session MDEM will be focussing on how to recruit younger trustees to your museum. The workshop will be led by Heather Lomas, Organisational Health Consultant for MDEM who will share learnings from MDEM’s Succession Planning programme. It will also feature insights from Alison Bowyer, Executive Director of Kids in Museum on their board’s approach to recruiting younger trustees.
There will be plenty of time for questions and discussion throughout.
In advance of the session, please consider:
- What could younger trustees bring to the museum?
- Are there any barriers to attracting younger people as trustees and how can these be removed?
- The steps you could take to recruit younger trustees.
Who should attend?
Board members from East and West Midlands museums who are interested in recruiting younger trustees.
