Weatherspoon Art Museum Advisory Board

"Amplifying the voice of the Weatherspoon Art Museum and the visual arts in the cultural conversation of our community."

Since its inception as the Friends of Weatherspoon Gallery in 1942, the Weatherspoon Art Museum Advisory (WAMA) Board has fulfilled the above mission by providing guidance, funding, and volunteer time to the Weatherspoon. WAMA is part of the UNCG Excellence Foundation, a certified non-profit organization. WAMA provides advice and support to the museum director and staff. Through membership, individual giving, and special fundraising events, WAMA supports acquisitions, exhibitions, marketing initiatives, public receptions, and other museum projects.

Board members are elected to serve three-year terms and can be re-elected for an additional three years. The slate of nominations is offered for approval by the museum membership at its annual meeting in May. The Board meets four times per year, with its Executive Committee meeting in the interim months and additionally as needed. Standing Committees include Acquisitions, Annual Meeting, Education, Finance, Governance, Hospitality, Membership, Special Events, and Volunteers; ad hoc committees are organized for specific projects. With the exception of the Acquisitions Committee, which is chaired by the museum director, all committees are chaired by a board member and include both board and non-board members. If interested, please see the volunteer page.
