This training is for any museums and museum friends groups wishing to develop their working relationship. The day should ideally be attended by the Chair of the Friends Group and the Museum Manager together, in order to fully benefit from the training. Museums wanting to start a new friends group will also benefit from attending this course.
The course will include:
- Overview of different ways Friends Groups can work, including legal constitution and the view from BAfM
- Collaborative working as the basis for enduring success with Friends Groups
- Overcoming challenges – some common scenarios
- Developing Friends’ roles as active fundraisers and advocates for museums
- Action planning – delegates will identify the most likely next steps for them, based on what they have learnt and relating this to their own situations
By the end of the course, participants will:
- have a good understanding of the role and constitution of Friends Groups
- have learnt about the challenges faced by many Museums and Friends groups, and understand how to begin to overcome these
- produce their own plan of action to implement their learning at their own museums
Lunch and all refreshments will be included.
