The American Alliance of Museums and Board Source have partnered on two major initiatives: Stand for Your Mission and the National Survey on Museum Trustees and Governance. Presenters will discuss the initiatives and the importance of increased trustee advocacy for museums in the U.S. and Canada, current advocacy issues from a trustee perspective, and results of a national survey. Museum professionals at all levels of experience will take home inspirations for advocacy and action.
