The Association of British Transport and Engineering Museums (ABTEM) are holding a free Spring Seminar on Volunteers in a Changing Environment. You can read more about ABTEM’s work on their very useful blog – http://abtemssn.wordpress.com
At a time when museums are facing significant challenges and a difficult economic climate, the recruitment and retention of volunteers is vitally important for the sustainability of many organisations. Accordingly, on Wednesday 30th April, ABTEM will be holding a free seminar at STEAM (Museum of the GWR, Swindon) exploring current developments in volunteering.
Topics covered will include:
- change management
- legal issues
- valuing volunteers
- health & safety
We look forward to sharing a day of good practice amongst volunteers and their managers who work in museums with transport and engineering collections.
Limited travel bursaries will be available for this meeting through Arts Council England Subject Specialist Network Funding – details of how to apply are available at:http://abtemssn.wordpress.com/abtem-travel-bursaries-3/
