GOVERNANCE AT DORSET COUNTY MUSEUM
Dorset County Museum is owned by the members of the Dorset Natural History and Archaeological Society. The members elect a Board of twelve Trustees who are responsible for the overall strategy of the Society and the management of its Museum.
The pattern of governance for the Society and its Museum is set out in our Articles Of Association, which were last revised in September 2014. In addition there is a set of Regulations which covers operational and more routine matters within the governance of management of the Society and its Museum. The Board has also developed a range of Policy Documents to guide the running of the Society and its Museum and produces an Annual Report each year which gives an overview of the health of the Society in line with the regulations set our by the Charities Commission and Companies House.
