A Month in the Life

In case you ever wondered what I get up to at my museums. :) Below is my to-do list for the month of March for just one of my three museums. This month's a bit busier than usual because I'll be out the first couple of weeks of April.

It definitely helped me to get everything down and get to work on it (note that the first item is already crossed off). A to-do list, huh? Simple & old-school, but it works. :)  UPDATE: I'm going to cross things off as I go.  Huzzah!

Must Do:
  • spend Staples Rewards $ ($50~,  various program supplies)
  • prepare for home school group's visit for shoemaking program on 3/17
  • decide on summer camp themes & dates and have brochures printed
  • begin to distribute brochures and publicize program (esp. spring preview once date is set - 4/30)
  • send camp info to CITs and counselor
  • develop and publicize April vacation program
  • schedule guest speakers and alternate activities for first 2 weeks of after-school archaeology program
  • consult with curator and website designer on education needs for new website
  • write a raise proposal to the Board (mention competitive wages & accomplishments)
  • order gift shop items and new ice cream maker
  • spend donation from city councilor (raccoon fur for Native American program basket and IKEA organization boxes for educational supplies closet)

Would Like to Do (if Time):
  • get back in touch with local art teacher re: collage workshop for area seniors & our award of grant money for senior programs
  • contact local Council on Aging coordinator to book future senior lectures
  • contact schools who didn’t visit museum in fall and try to schedule them for spring
  • follow up with Scout groups who got in touch over the winter
