The Director is the chief executive officer and administrative head of the Museum and is responsible to the Museum’s Board of Trustees for the operation of the Museum and its programs.

The Director will be offered a competitive salary, contingent upon experience.
The new Director will arrive at an opportune time. Following a devastating storm in 2017, the museum sustained major damage. The Trustees decided to use this tragedy as an opportunity and are in the process of relocating the facility downtown. Thus, making it more accessible to the general public, school children and Albany State University students.
The Director will oversee the implementation of a recently completed Strategic Plan. The Plan calls for fostering increased community engagement and updating and expanding the Museum’s offerings; and the new Director will add input and refine the Plan. He/she can also play a role in civic leadership and regional cultural development at a moment when the city’s downtown is in a renaissance. This is a unique opportunity for an energetic leader to rapidly make a mark and leave a legacy in the first 5-7 years.
The Strategic Plan calls for the Director to reach out and further engage and serve the local community -- through partnerships, marketing, and new programming. He/she will expand audiences, especially to include new generations and nontraditional constituencies. The Director will maintain and expand operating and capital support, primarily by cultivating philanthropists and corporations; and will inspire the professional staff.
