The Turks & Caicos National Museum Foundation is seeking the help of volunteers to assist with the running of the existing Provo museum facility in The Village at Grace Bay.
Duties will include conducting short tours and assisting with gift shop sales and will amount to a few hours a week, at set times. It is hoped to assemble a team of 3-4 persons so a roster can be established. Full training will be given.
The National Museum Foundation is also establishing a fund-raising committee on Providenciales to assist with raising funds for the new museum building designed by globally renowned architect, Ron Shaw. The committee will consist of a representative from the TCI Government, a representative of TCHTA, two existing board members and a number of
volunteers from the wider community.
The objectives of the committee are to create public awareness for the new national museum building and to work on various fund-raising initiatives to cover the construction cost.
Interested persons should contact Lisa Talbot, National Museum Manager at
firstname.lastname@example.org or 649-247-2160 or Seamus Day at email@example.com or 649-431-2849 or please visit the national museum’s website: www.tcmuseum.org
