Harold and Susan Skramstad, two of the field's most highly regarded experts in museum management, outline the tools you and your board need to handle the challenges facing museums today. A Handbook for Museum Trustees
was written to help museum trustees better understand the "why" and the "how" of trusteeship, giving board members and museum directors a thorough understanding of their critical and non-negotiable duties. The book clearly identifies areas of responsibility and offers valuable, how-to advice on board discussion and decision-making, providing practical guidelines for improving board practices and fine-tuning the work of the effective board. "Not only will the tens of thousands of us who work in museums benefit from A Handbook for Museum Trustees," says Stephen E. Weil, "so, too, will the millions more who pass through our doors."
