West Midlands Museum Development (WMMD) is hosting two complementary workshops on Wednesday 30 March. The workshops will look at finance for museums; one aimed at Accreditation and the second for trustees. Trustees are welcome to book either or both sessions.
Accreditation and Financial Sustainability
Olivia Basterfield will lead the morning session, focusing on the Accreditation requirement 2.2. Financial sustainability.
This session is designed to support all museums preparing an Accreditation application or return. Whether you’re an independent museum or based within a university or local authority, we’ll explore which documents to submit to Arts Council England and what your assessor will be looking for.
Financial Responsibility for Trustees
The afternoon session will be led by Jane Tweedie (BSc, FCA, DChA) Senior Manager at WR Partners. This session is specifically for trustees of independent charitable museums and will be useful for both new and existing trustees.
Jane will discuss the six main duties of a trustee and how they relate to finance. This session will support your organisation with Accreditation requirements 1. Have appropriate governance and management and 2.2. Financial sustainability.
