Providing collection care, preservation and conservation treatment services to collectors and collecting institutions.
Online Museum Classes
This short seminar meets the requirements of the Virginia Association of Museum's Certificate in Museum Management.
The heart of every museum is its collection and a mission statement is critical to preserving that collection. Participants in the Mission Statement will discuss their mission statements and whether they really make a difference. Peggy has seen and heard it all as a consultant to small and large museums. She will help you figure out ways to make your mission statement work for you.
Participants in The Mission Statement will read literature and participate in two one-hour chats to discuss how a museum's mission statement may or may not impact the daily operations. Each student should read course materials and prepare questions or comments to share with the other students in the chat. This is a mini-course and takes no more than 10 hours of a student's time.
