WILLITS, 1/12/23 — The Mendocino County Museum is developing its strategic plan for the future, and is inviting community feedback as part of the process. The museum has launched a digital survey, which will run until April 28, 2023, and has also planned a series of community meetings around the county beginning in February.
You can take the survey at this link, or attend one of the meetings to share your ideas about how the museum could improve its services for residents, and what direction you think the organization should take in the future.
“Our community forums will be an opportunity to listen to the ideas and desires of our community and gain an understanding of how the museum can serve everyone’s interests better. We are
really excited for this opportunity to engage with everyone,” notes Karen Mattson, Museum
Administrator, in the announcement.
Here’s all the details from the museum:
MUSEUM LAUNCHES COMMUNITY FORUMS & SURVEY
Help Shape the Future of Your Museum!
The Mendocino County Museum is launching a Community Engagement Series of meetings and
posting an online survey to ignite discussion about its future direction. Through extensive planned
outreach efforts, staff are venturing forth to build relationships with our stakeholders and gain
insight from community members that will help shape the future of our museum. The digital survey
is available now on the Mendocino County Museum Website. The survey requires only a few
minutes of time to complete and provides valuable data for the Museum. The survey closes on
Community Forums will begin on February 15th and Museum staff, along with members from the
Museum Advisory Board, the Strategic Planning Committee, and the Friends of the Museum, will
tour the county to collectively gather information to help envision a bright future. Digital exhibits
will be available for all to enjoy, as will refreshments provided by the Friends. In addition to the
three Community Forums held in Willits, a Community Forum will be held at the following
Mendocino County Branch Libraries.
