Make the Law Work for You:

Legal Responsibilities of Museum Operations

December 2, 2020 - 10AM-12PM EST

Museum operations include keeping your site, visitors and staff, and organization safe, and understanding the liability you incur is paramount. This workshop will offer a dedicated look at the legal ramifications of keeping your organization and site safe and the legal duties museum staff and boards are responsible for. Whether from snow or ice on sidewalks, spills and other hazards that may happen indoors, or the threat of COVID-19, operating during a pandemic is one that requires preparation and training to meet the demands of the coming months.
