Presentations from ‘Museum Trustee Day 2017’

This day was an opportunity for Trustees from museums across the area to get together and receive an induction or refresher about the museum sector and good governance. The event was a partnership project between the South East Museum Development and the Association of Independent Museums (AIM) Hallmarks. Both are funded by Arts Council England.
