  • Collaborates closely with the Curator on an interpretative plan for museum exhibits.

  • Serves as our community ambassador: handles communications; oversees the newsletter and website; and manages programs, including their design and delivery, that support Natick’s schools and the varying interests of the community,

  • Develops fiscally sound operational budgets and administers them responsibly.

  • Manages facilities day-to-day, ensuring that they are clean, safe, and secure.

  • Makes it a priority to increase our visibility, grow our membership, recruit volunteers, and increase funding sources.

Position Requirements:  

  • A degree in Museum or Archival Studies or related experience in historical preservation.
