Webinar Description

Assessment programs like AASLH’s StEPs program are road maps. They are a valuable tool for moving an organization forward along a path and helping paid and unpaid staff, volunteers, and board members stay focused as they travel together along that path toward a set of common goals.

Organizations that can connect planning and fundraising to an assessment program gain credibility. Funders like to know that your proposed project is based upon goals that are supported by an assessment program, and that your organization’s progress can be measured.

StEPs is a self-study assessment program open to any museum, historical society, historic house, site, or related organization. It is intended for small- and mid-sized organizations that do not feel ready for other assessment programs, but larger museums may find it useful for prioritizing and as a refresher checklist or training tool. Enrollment in StEPs is a one-time fee of $175 for institutional members of AASLH.

Is your organization ready for StEPs? Join us for this free, one-hour webinar to hear how StEPs can help your organization create a road map for meaningful change.

Note: This webinar is for organizations that are considering using the StEPs program. Organizations already enrolled in the program should register for the free webinar, “StEPs Welcome or Refresher” on March ?, 2020.

Speakers

Prior to joining AASLH, Cherie Cook worked with museums in Oklahoma for more than sixteen years, first as field services coordinator and then as executive director of the Oklahoma Museums Association. As a result of her work, OMA became one of the most active state museum associations in the nation. Much of Cherie’s work at AASLH focuses on smaller history organizations and is influenced not only by her years in Oklahoma but also her experience as a county historical society curator and one glorious summer spent as a historic site interpreter. Cherie holds an MA in Historical Administration from Eastern Illinois University and a BA in History from Kansas State University. She has authored seven technical bulletins and edited both the StEPs program workbook and The Source: A Museum Reference Manual, an 800-page guide produced for museums in Oklahoma.

Alex Collins is a Middle Tennessee local who has worked and volunteered at local historic sites and museums since 2011. She holds a BA in History from Middle Tennessee State University and is working toward completing an MA in Public History at the same institution. Before joining AASLH, Alex was employed with Bynon Art Services as a Conservation Technician on the new Tennessee State Museum project in Nashville, TN. She has also previously held positions at Stones River National Battlefield in Murfreesboro, TN and the Sam Davis Home in Smyrna, TN. Some of her professional experience includes preventative conservation, collections management, interpretation, museum programming, and event planning. Alex is currently the Secretary and Membership Chair for the Inter-Museum Council of Nashville, and serves on the Awards Committee for the Tennessee Association of Museums.
