Learning … A Lifelong Process

Learning…A Lifelong Process

The Great Lakes Children’s Museum Staff and Trustees are living proof that learning is an on-going and never-ending process.  Exposure to new thoughts, and reminders of past learning are essential to the development of new and challenging exhibits and programming.

In September 2014, the Staff and Trustees benefited from $1,500.00 in professional development funding from the Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs regranted through Northsky Nonprofit Network.  Staff attended training on fund raising, computer training, and contractor relations.  Trustees attended training on Board Governance and grant writing.

“We are grateful to the Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs and the Northsky Nonprofit Network for making the training possible,” says Michael Long, Executive Director.  “The Museum is at a critical stage and the learning from these courses will be immediately impactful on our operation.”
