Museums Aotearoa is an incorporated society focused on supporting the public museums and galleries and those who work with them in Aotearoa New Zealand.
Museums Aotearoa is governed by a Board comprising a minimum of six individuals elected by members according to the Rules.
The Board meets quarterly.
The Board employs an Executive Director, who is responsible for the day to day running of the organisation, including employment of additional staff. Total staffing is approximately 2 FTE.
Annual Returns are due within 6 months of a charity’s balance date (financial year-end), or a longer period if an extension has been granted.
Here is a list of all the details changed by the charity, for example adding or removing officers, amending rules, changing balance dates or updating address details.
