Association of African American Museums

Log Number: MH-246018-OMS-20

The Association of African American Museums will continue to strengthen its organizational effectiveness by expanding member services and assessing the impact of recent capacity building efforts. The association will work with two student interns to assess member services in response to a 2017 National Needs Assessment and to identify additional needs that have developed over time. A consulting firm will assess the organization's success in implementing strategic plan goals over the past three years. The project will support and train students from historically black colleges and universities in learning skills related to organizational sustainability and capacity building while gaining working knowledge in areas such as member cultivation and engagement and program development. Association members will benefit from at least three professional development webinars based on survey findings, and the organization will complete revisions to its strategic plan.
