The new Standard was launched in 2018 and museums are now getting invitations to make their Accreditation returns. Find out what’s changed and what you’ll need to do to meet the new Standard. Sarah Brown from Collections Trust will outline how Spectrum 5.0 can help you meet the collections management requirements and Kate Hebditch, SEMDP Accreditation Adviser will explain the new requirements on forward plans, governance and constitutions. We’ll look at the ‘Users and their experiences’ changes and what policies and plans you’ll need for access and audiences. We’ll also take a look at the new online application system. Please bring your existing forward plan, documentation plan and procedures manual. There will be some ‘surgeries’ for those wishing to discuss particular issues with Kate or Sarah. Please request a surgery when you book.
This session is relevant to trustees, staff or volunteers who are responsible for completing the museum’s Accreditation return.
