Museum Practice explores the role of museum boards and trustees
Good governance is essential to the success of a museum.

The latest edition of Museum Practice looks at the role of boards, and examines how museums can strengthen the relationship between executive teams, staff and board members.

Using case studies of recent governance reviews, the articles explore how the structure and management of boards can contribute to the success of an organisation.

Good recruitment practices are also examined, with an emphasis on the techniques that can help museums diversify their boards.

Neal Green, the senior policy advisor at the Charity Commission, also shares highlights from new guidance on the role that trustees can play in an institution.
