See below for more details and eligibility.
Changes in Data Protection: How to grow support for your museum
Do you want to know how to engage with your supporters effectively? Are you interested in building long term relationships with you visitors, volunteers and wider audiences? Almost every organisation holds contact lists, whether they be for newsletters, members or just general data gathering. With the changes in the new General Data Protection Regulation all organisations are needed to review their practices and adopt different strategies when gathering people email and other personal information.
This half day session will look at how to ensure your organisation is meeting its legal requirements, and will also provide strategies for using this as an opportunity to grow support with your audiences. This session will be delivered by the leading specialist Helen Shone, cofounder of Development Partners. Having worked in fundraising for over ten years, Helen has experience of devising fundraising strategies, trusts and foundations, the Heritage Lottery Fund, individual giving and gift management systems.
On the Day:
We’ll also have the opportunity to hear from fellow trustee network members Barrow Hill Roundhouse on their recent capital projects. This historic venue has seen a vast transformation through a significant injection of funding to become a leading visitor attraction in the area.
A networking lunch will also be available on the day, followed by the opportunity to explore the site and influence future meetings and topics.
The East Midlands Trustee Network is aimed at trustees in museums and heritage organisations in the region. Due to our funding, if the event is oversubscribed priority will be given to individuals from accredited museums or those working towards accreditation.
