What the Opportunity is:
Working and reporting to the Museum Association of Saskatchewan’s Museum Advisor, the chosen candidate will develop and write the MAS’s Museum Management Self-Assessment Workbook using the standards found in Standards for Saskatchewan Museums 2016 as indicators. This project can be completed in person and/or online.
Using the predetermined standards, the consultant will create a workbook that specifically focuses on Museum Management, including governance, museum management, risk management, financial management, information management, human resources and marketing. The consultant will use the standards to create a uniform Performance Indicator for each standard. The workbook is estimated to be approximately 100-125 pages long at completion.
The workbook will also include:

• List of suggestions on how museums can improve themselves and achieve the highest indicator level for each standard.
• Tips and Hints for each Section
• List of unacceptable practices.
• Glossary of Terms
• List of Further Resources
