Board Class of 2020 Application Information
The Small Museum Association welcomes applications for the Board Class of 2020. Applications are due by November 15, 2019.
In the past, SMA has selected new trustees from its membership and conference attendee pool, asking current board members to recommend qualified candidates. We have now moved to a more open process, allowing interested candidates to nominate themselves. In doing so, we hope to welcome new board members who will share the can-do attitude that has always fueled the Association’s work while bringing new perspectives to its leadership.
We are seeking up to three board members who will be eligible to serve two three-year terms, from 2020-2023 and 2023-2026.
While SMA has historically been rooted in the mid-Atlantic region, we would happily welcome board members from outside that area who are willing to meet the expectations below.
SMA board members are asked to:
We understand that attendance may be affected by other obligations and accommodate requests to attend in-person meetings via conference call if necessary.
Selection Process: Candidates must submit their completed application by November 15. The Committee will select candidates and notify them of their selection by the end of December. The candidates will attend the annual Conference in February, where their candidacy will be formally voted on by the SMA membership.
To Apply: Submit the application linked to below and email your resume or CV along with a reference contact to firstname.lastname@example.org by November 15.
