Cornwall Museums Partnership Seeks Chair of Trustees

Cornwall Museums Partnership has recently become a Charitable Incorporated Organisation and is seeking an independent Chair of Trustees. CMP was formed in 2012 and the success of its work has been recognised by it being awarded the highly prestigious Major Partnership Museum funding by Arts Council England.

This innovative and successful partnership exists to support the development of the whole museum sector in Cornwall. Turnover of CMP activity in 2015 will be £1.7m and it will shortly be appointing its first Chief Executive to co-ordinate and manage the delivery of a range of initiatives.

Cornwall’s Museums are a diverse sector consisting of 70 museums ranging from national award winning museums through to very small volunteer operated organisations. We are looking for an energetic Chair with a passion for Cornwall’s unique heritage who has the experience and the qualities required to work with the new Chief Executive to drive the partnership forward.
