Getting Museum Leadership Engaged with Your Education Programming: An Insider’s Perspective

January 18, 2017 @ 2:00 am - 3:15 pm


Museum Educator Series Season 4, Webinar 7 with Chuck Clark, Executive Director, Castle Preservation Society

Although education programming is a key component of delivering on our missions as educational institutions, it can often feel like the board and executive leadership of the museum aren’t as engaged as we’d like them to be with this important work.  This interactive session will give you a chance to hear from an Executive Director about how museum educators can work to build interest and engagement with the management of the organization – including navigating organizational politics, communicating about and championing new initiatives, and managing change and risk related to changes in educational opportunities and priorities.

Charles “Chuck” Clark has been the Executive Director of Castle Preservation Society, in Moultonborough, New Hampshire, since October 2014.  For the past decade, CPS has been working to preserve, restore, and operate the historic Lucknow Estate, now a historic house museum known as Castle in the Clouds.  As Executive Director, Charles is responsible for the overall strategic direction and mission execution of the organization.  Before being elevated to the position of Executive Director, he served for a year as the organization’s Operations Director focusing on creating a culture of customer service and managing all earned revenue streams at the Castle.  A 2001 graduate of The Ohio State University, Charles spent the first 15 years of his museum career in various educational and operational roles at COSI, the nationally recognized science center in Columbus, Ohio.  Chuck currently lives in Center Tuftonboro, NH with his wife, Kristen, and children Malcolm and Naomi, ages 8 and 3.
