Prospering Boards – New Opportunity To Apply


Could your board benefit from expert support? Prospering Boards works with boards to help them strengthen their leadership, work more strategically or deal more effectively with emerging challenges.

If you are a trustee of an Accredited Museum (or one working towards Accreditation) in England and would like to discuss what support might be available for your board, please contact AIM’s Assistant Director, Helen Wilkinson, at

Helen Wilkinson, AIM Assistant Director, said of the launch: “We’ve seen Prospering Boards support making real difference to boards of all shapes and sizes. Boards across England have gained new insight, new energy, new ways of working, and new trustees. We’re delighted to be relaunching the programme and opening to new applications, thanks to Arts Council England NPO funding. And we have a new opportunity for boards looking for more focused support to apply for a short microconsultancy. So we’re looking forward to hearing from museum boards about their ambitions and how we can help realise them.”
