Trustees and Overseers

Board of Trustees 2014 – 2015

The individual Trustees of the Museum of Science are united by a strong commitment to supporting the Museum and its mission. They represent a broad cross-section of professional, community, and cultural backgrounds.

Specifically, trustees help in the identification and recruitment of other trustee leadership who represent the diverse communities the Museum serves. Trustees are also responsible for ensuring the Museum's overall well-being. It is expected that each individual trustee will remain thoroughly informed of the Museum's general programs and operations, and will actively participate on at least one standing committee.
