Event: SHCG-ABTEM seminar on succession planning

When It’s Gone, It’s Gone – Keeping Knowledge Safe

How do institutions plan for succession? When long-serving staff and volunteers leave what happens to their knowledge? How do museums cope with fewer people with specialist knowledge?

Join SHCG and the Association of British Transport and Engineering Museums for a one day seminar at the National Railway Museum, York to consider these issues and have an opportunity for sharing strategies and projects.

Confirmed speakers include Steph Mastoris on SHCG’s firstBase project and Dr Laura Humphreys on harvesting information from curators at the Science Museum.

The seminar will cost £12 (excluding lunch) and there will be opportunity to look around the NRM.
