Legacy administrator Cheryl Stallings has been appointed to serve a two-year term as director-at-large on the Virginia Association of Museums (VAM) Council. The Council acts as a board of trustees and has the responsibility for the continuity (financial health) and direction (programming) of the Association. The Council serves as the policy-making body. It consists of five officers (president, vice-president for planning and resources, vice-president for programs, secretary, and treasurer), five regional directors, five discipline-representative directors, four directors-at-large, and the immediate past president. Council members have voting privileges and may appoint advisors, who serve as active members of Council and consultants for staff, but who do not have voting rights. The Council meets bi-monthly either in Charlottesville or Richmond.
Established in 1968, VAM is a non-profit, professional membership organization for museums and individuals associated with museums, primarily in Virginia, serving all museum disciplines. The Association brings together individuals and institutions to educate, train, foster development, and provide support for museums and museum staff.
Feel free to call Cheryl and congratulate her on this great accomplishment.
