MS 007: The Mission Statement: Is it really that important?
Instructor: Peggy Schaller
November 10 through 15, 2008
Price: $75
Location: <URL:>

    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.

    Logistics: 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.
