Registration is closed

The COVID-19 pandemic has forced some museums to permanently close, presenting their staffs and boards with unexpected legal and ethical questions about what would become of their assets. This program will use examples from shuttered museums to address how to go about dissolving a collection and liquidating its assets. Resources from museum workers and state agencies will help institutions take steps now to prepare for an unexpected closure in the future.

Presenters:

  • Joseph Govednik, Museum Director, Cowlitz County Historical Museum
  • R. Lewis Ferguson, former Director, World of Speed Museum (now closed)
  • Jenn Clemo, Director of Nonprofit Leadership & Resources, Nonprofit Association of Oregon
