Once museum professionals become upper-level administrators, they might imagine they finally have autonomy as well as authority. In truth, a director always must report to some other governing body, which can limit independent action however brilliantly conceived. The challenge is to make the relationship with a governing body positive and collegial, especially in terms of areas of responsibility. In this session, speakers share their experiences working with boards of trustees, college administrators, and governmental agencies.
