Security Review 'sharing day'
Accredited museums must obtain expert and objective security advice for collections at least every five years and plan to implement any recommendations. We are interested to find out if there are museums in west Kent who are due a review of their security arrangements and would benefit from a 'sharing day' with a consultant security advisor to help meet the Accreditation requirement. Please contact email@example.com to register your interest.
Heritage Volunteering Group: Regional Network Event
Monday 11th September 2017
Imperial War Museum North, Manchester
Over the past couple of years Heritage Volunteering Group have tried to connect those working within the sector and help practitioners and strategic leaders share some of the excellent work that is happening across the country. Last year Heritage Volunteering Group ran their first conference, at the Natural History Museum, followed this year by the conference at the National Museum of Wales in Cardiff.
This year, in addition to running a conference, we are planning to lead a second networking session for those who run regional heritage volunteer groups or who are interested in doing so.
The HVG networking event will take place at the Imperial War Museum in Manchester on the 11 September, between 11:00am and 3:00pm The purpose of the event is to:
- Facilitate the sharing of best practice
- Provide you with a platform to connect with one another
- Allow regional groups to connect and influence the work of HVG
- Support the long-term sustainability of regional groups
