BISMARCK – The State Historical Society of North Dakota (SHSND) will be offering free workshops for county, local, and tribal organizations this summer. “Good, Better, Best: Museum Standards and Best Practices” workshops will allow museum staff, board members, and volunteers to better understand the best practices and standards being used by small museums.
Presenter Danielle Stuckle, Outreach coordinator with SHSND, will also discuss the StEPs program and how it can be used to evaluate policies and procedures and help museums better achieve their missions. Other featured topics will include collections care and management; care and maintenance of buildings; and general administration and management. Workshops will include a discussion of current museum projects in the region, and a tour of the host museum.
The first workshop will be at the Cass County Historical Society in West Fargo, ND, on June 14, 2013, at 1 p.m. A second workshop will take place on June 28, 2013, at 1 p.m. at the Sargent County Historical Society and Museum in Forman, ND.
