A Note about Memberships

All institutional and individual memberships have been updated to add an extra 60 days to those memberships due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation. If possible, any new memberships and renewals should be paid online.

A Members Only Section

Please excuse our dust as we gradually work to build out a Members Only Section to enhance functionality and usefulness for you, our Members and colleagues! Periodic updates about newly available features will be posted here.

One of the benefits of membership with the North Carolina Museums Council is access to the Members Only Section and the features contained herein. We hope you find the information in this section helpful. Thank you for being a Member.

Our first Members Only Section feature is FORUMS. (Administration, Collections, Education & Programming, Exhibit Design & Development, Marketing & PR, Visitor Experience, and Other Topics)

Check it out! (Note: You will need to be logged in with your username and password.)

SEEKING NC MUSEUMS PROFESSIONALS for the New NCMC Museums Professional Resource Directory

Are you a North Carolina business or professional who works with museums? NCMC is compiling a list of professionals for members and their institutions to consult for their museum-related needs. If you are interested in being listed in this directory, please fill out our Online Form

This directory will not be an endorsement of any business. The NCMC Museums Professional Resource Directory will serve as a directory resource for museums seeking professional assistance in North Carolina. The directory, accessible only by NCMC members, will list business contact information, websites, expertise, and service area. Museums are encouraged to research and interview businesses to find the best professional fit. All survey respondents’ answers will be screened and selected to ensure best fit.

If you have questions, please contact our Membership Chair, Lindsey Waldenberg at membership@ncmuseums.org.
