Help Shape the Future of the Mendocino County Museum: Participate in Upcoming Community Forums and Complete Online Survey


The following is a press release issued by the County of Mendocino:

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 April 28th.

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.
