The board serves as a support group for the Museum of the Albemarle by raising funds; advising the museum staff of 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 session.
