The North Carolina Museums Council is receiving applications for the next round of our Free On-Site Consultation Services (FOCoS) until February 29, 2020. FOCoS provides advice and guidance to small or emerging museums using the resources and expertise found in established museums around the state. As a result of FOCoS, not only do museums receive valuable feedback on their programs and operations, but the museum community and council are strengthened through the collaborative effort of professionals reaching out to share their knowledge of the field.
A two-person team of NCMC consultants is assigned to a selected qualifying site. Consultants visit and tour their assigned site over a two-day period and together offer professional advice, in the form of a written report, relating to needs specified as priorities by the recipient site.
For more information visit our website (ncmuseums.org/focos) or contact NCMC Vice-President, Christian Edwards. Submissions are due February, 29, 2020 and the recipient will be announced at the NCMC annual conference and meeting in Rocky Mount in March.
