This session took place during the Western Museums Association 2013 Annual Meeting
In the process of developing a new strategic plan, the Utah Museum of Fine Arts (UMFA) developed self-reflective questions regarding its mission and vision. UMFA staff visited museums in Seattle, Los Angeles, the Bay Area, and Austin with the aim of studying variations of best practice to guide this work. By developing a clear, strategic direction for the institution, museum staff was able to devise changes to the organizational structure and operational strategies in accordance with short and long-term objectives. This session will include questions and findings regarding curatorial practice, sustainability, engagement, and strategic planning to ensure the health, success, and impact of the Museum.
