The last three months have seen plenty of activity around the History Trust’s Museums and Collections (MaC) standards and funding program for historical groups that manage collections. Between March and May we welcomed eight new MaC Member groups and several museums in the outgoing Community Museums Program also made the switch to MaC. We are getting some very encouraging feedback from members about using the MaC membership process for a bit of a ‘check-in’ about how and where they are heading. It is great to see such a variety of community history groups taking an interest in MaC and wanting to discover more about standards for collections practices.
For more about our latest MaC members, take a look at their profile pages on this website.
The MaC program is relevant to South Australian community museums, history groups and collecting organisations at whatever stage of their development. Community history groups that would like to find out more about MaC membership are very welcome to contact us.
