The purpose of this consultancy was to assist the Upcountry History Museum in developing their board of directors into an engaged decision-making body. At the beginning of the consultancy, the museum was preparing to craft a strategic plan for the next ten years and had hopes of becoming accredited by the American Alliance of Museums in the future. Museum leadership requested help from the consultant in the areas of board governance and engagement. During the three-year project, the consultant worked to provide the museum with updated bylaws, a new onboarding program for new members, and the creation and implementation of a committee structure. These deliverables enabled the museum leadership to begin to transition the board of directors into an active, governing body to ensure the vision and the mission of the museum is realized.
