Does your museum have objects in its possession for which there is no signed deed of gift? Expired loans that no one has collected? Objects that appeared one day without a note or explanation? You’re not alone.
In this webinar guest speaker Erin Richardson addresses how to resolve unclaimed and abandoned property in museum collections. Webinar participants learn why claiming title to this property is beneficial and what the basic processes are to do so. Erin reviews unclaimed property law generally, and provide resources on how to find the law in your state. She will also discuss what to do when title is successfully claimed. Lastly, we’ll review strategies to prevent future unclaimed loans and abandoned property in your collection.
