Administering a Collecting Institution

An Informal Roundtable Discussion

Join Seashore Trolley Museum Executive Director Katie Orlando and Yarmouth History Center Executive Director Katie Worthing for a drop-in Q&A session to discuss your questions about museum administration. The hosts will be available to chat and facilitate discussion about issues including staff and volunteer management, board engagement, forging successful community collaborations, fundraising, and social media and marketing. This will be an informal chat driven by member questions, so drop-ins at any time during the hour are welcome.

This event will not be recorded.

Your facilitators


Katie Orlando is executive director of the Seashore Trolley Museum in Kennebunkport. Katie Worthing is executive director of the Yarmouth History Center in Yarmouth. Both will be answering questions and facilitating discussion amongst attendees.
