Leadership and Management Network (LMN)

The Leadership and Management Network promotes excellence by providing resources and peer-to-peer networking in the areas of leadership, governance, administration, finance and human resources.

The Network provides a forum where professional peers can identify common concerns and share expertise.  It also acts as a clearinghouse of ideas, provides professional development and facilitates communication among its members and all museum professionals.
