On September 23rd, 24th and 25th, 2011 the Mann Art Gallery
Staff and Board of Directors completed a gruelling three day session of
Governance Training and Policy Development with consultant Dawn
Martin of Daybreak Consulting. The final product was a completely new set
of policies adapted from the originals that will enhance the
relationships and reporting structure between Staff and Board as well as
provide the necessary tools to bring our Organization into the future.
The Board wishes to thank SaskCulture for the
Capacity Building Grant which enabled the funding for
Strategic Plan Development
On October 16th and 17th, 2010, Lydia Franc Beaurivage facilitated a
two day workshop in which board members brought concerns and suggestions
regarding the future direction of the gallery. A Key Action outline was
formulated that encompasses a three year time frame. On November 25th,
2010, Lydia met with the board again to assist in implementation of
three of the key actions as felt by the board were priorities. The board
has set a target of June 2011 for completion of those three key actions.
At that time the board will revisit the project report to select the
next actions. To ensure adequate time is spent on strategic planning,
reports and discussion are held at the beginning of every board meeting.
The Board wishes to thank SaskCulture for the
Capacity Building Grant which enabled not only funding for this project, but also for a workshop
with Brenda Sherring in which she presented to the board steps and
considerations to be taken in building policy.
