Leadership and Administration in History Organizations is part of the American Association for State and Local History's Small Museum Pro! Certificate program. This course proposes that museum administration and leadership matter, regardless of the size or focus of your organization. Topics include governance and administrative structure, nonprofit status, mission and vision, board and staff responsibilities, the relationship between board and staff, strategic planning, human resource management, and leadership.

Developing Exhibitions Part 1 is part of the American Association for State and Local History's Small Museum Pro Certificate program. This is part 1 of a two-part class about how to put together an exhibition, from deciding what it will be about and why, to gathering, creating and arranging all the elements for visitors.  You’ll learn a lot from your classmates – from their own experiences and from the resources that they share with all of us.  And you’ll learn the best way: by doing – you will develop an actual exhibit over the course of the class.
