The Hull-House Museum Advisory board will serve to support the museum staff in the following areas:
• Advise Museum Director in planning of museum operations.
• Provide support in areas of fundraising and development.
• Attend meetings and programs.
• Promote, coordinate, and strengthen the advocacy and advancement of the museum within the University of Illinois at Chicago and broader community.
• Serve on subcommittees as necessary.
The board will consist of key stakeholders, historians, scholars, and community organizers who are committed to the Museum’s mission to serve as a dynamic memorial to social reformer and Nobel Peace Prize recipient Jane Addams and other resident social reformers whose work influenced the lives of their immigrant neighbors as well as national and international public policy.
In January 2013, the advisory board will form three subcommittees to assist with planning in the following areas: programming, exhibitions, and historic preservation. These committees will meet and respond to requests from staff members as needed. Additional community partners may be invited by the Hull-House staff to join these committees in order to contribute their unique perspectives and expertise.
The Program Committee is chartered to assist the director and program coordinator by providing input on program planning, helping to vet new programming partners and organizations to ensure that they adhere to the Museum’s mission and focus, promoting upcoming programs, and responding to other needs that arise.
The Exhibition Committee is chartered to assist the director and exhibition coordinator by providing input on exhibition planning and curation, helping to vet new community-curators and scholarly consultants, promoting upcoming exhibitions, and responding to other needs that arise.
The Historic Preservation Committee is chartered to assist the director and historic preservationist by helping to identify priorities in the preservation and restoration of the site, advising on educational programming related to historic preservation, and responding to other needs that arise.
