1) Hazards in Your Collection with Evelyn Fidler – November 19, 2020
Hazardous materials in your collection are a serious issue but you can protect yourself and your collection by being proactive. This webinar explores some of the various hazards and risks both inherent and acquired. The ability to identify them is important in order to develop a Hazardous Material Maintenance Plan that can be used in your museum.
2) Using Your Museum Collection to Build Specific Programming to Coincide with NB Social Studies with Cynthia Wallace-Casey – January 21, 2021
This webinar will help bridge the gap between educators and museum experts to benefit young people. Museum experts will learn to work with educators based on the current curricula to excite today’s youth about NB History in order for them to understand and/or connect to their past and their community.
3) Emergency Preparedness with Melynda Jarratt – February 2021
Throughout several communities, many museums do not have an emergency preparedness plan or have proper procedures in place as to what to do in case of an emergency when disaster strikes. The Fredericton Region Museum has developed a policy or best practice for such an occasion and has had to refer to it more than once. Melynda Jarratt will explore why it is important to have and emergency preparedness policy that is specific to an individual’s museum and what must be included in every emergency preparedness policy. She will also provide the necessary steps in order to build the best emergency preparedness policy and the importance of keeping it up-to-date.
