Executive Director Clemson Area African American Museum The City of Clemson is seeking a dynamic Executive Director for the Clemson Area African American Museum (CAAAM).

Experience with college/town environments and developing online and virtual museum educational resources and experiences is a plus. Reports to the City Administrator.

CAAAM was founded in 2007 as a 501(c)3 private, non-profit Museum. During the first twelve years of its existence, the Museum operated as an all-volunteer organization, managed and governed by a Board of Directors. In FY21 (which begins July 1, 2020), the Clemson Area African American Museum transitions to a City-owned and operated Museum.

Work with the City, City Council, Community Partners, and the Friends of CAAAM Board to develop a new strategic plan and vision for the Museum. Oversee and participate in fundraising efforts for CAAAM – including grants-writing, special events, requests to local, state, and national foundations, and strategic partnerships/ collaborations with community partners and Friends of CAAAM Board. Work closely with Friends of CAAAM Board and its members to enhance funding and volunteer support for Museum exhibits, programs and events. Partner with the Chamber of Commerce and the City to create a marketing and promotions plan for the Museum. Oversee the development, management, and preservation of Museum collections. Identify prospective professional development opportunities for staff and volunteers. Ensure that the operations and administration of CAAAM are in compliance with City policies and ordinances, adhere to state and federal regulations, and follow established best standards and practices for Museums.
