Friends of the Museum of Albemarle

Mission Statement

The Friends of the Museum of the Albemarle (FOMOA) is a non-profit support group that seeks to raise awareness and provide funding for exhibits, educational programming, and artifact conservation throughout the thirteen counties we serve. The counties served are Bertie, Camden, Chowan, Currituck, Dare, Gates, Hertford, Hyde, Northampton, Pasquotank, Perquimans, Tyrrell, and Washington counties. The Museum of the Albemarle is the recipient of all funds raised.


Board of Directors

The twenty-six (26) members of the Board of Directors of the Friends of the Museum of the Albemarle represent all thirteen (13) counties of the Albemarle region. The board serves as a support group for the Museum of the Albemarle by raising funds, advising the museum staff on regional expectations of the museum, and conveying information about museum exhibits, programs, and events to the citizens of their respective counties. Board members assist in recruiting and enhancing membership while serving their three-year term of office. The board meets monthly in either full board or executive sessions.

Johny Hallow is the current president of the Friends of the Museum of the Albemarle.
