Are you community-minded, interested in the heritage of the District and have good governance skills? You might like to consider becoming a trustee of The South Taranaki District Museum Trust. “With the resignation of Jim and Donna Baker, who have been such dedicated and hardworking trustees, and the unexpected passing of Paki Hopkins, the Museum Trust is looking for trustees,” said Chair, Rosanne Oakes.
The Trust’s objectives are to protect the taonga/ treasures of the district for future generations and to ensure that our heritage is accessible to our community and visitors Stage two of the building redevelopment project is now underway, which will provide on-site storage for the Collection as well as new exhibition and workshop spaces – so it will be helpful to have new trustees with project management and fundraising experience. Those with an education, cultural or heritage background are also encouraged to apply.
If you are interested but would like to have a look around the Museum and meet the other trustees, come and have a cup of tea and behind the scenes tour on Sunday 6 July at 1.00pm.
Expressions of interest can be sent to The Secretary, South Taranaki District Museum Trust, 127 Egmont Street, Pātea, South Taranaki.
For more information including copies of the Trust’s Strategic Plan and Trust Deed please contact the Secretary at firstname.lastname@example.org
Nominations close on 9 July and will be considered at the Trust’s July meeting and confirmed at its AGM on 10 July.
