On 11 August, new museum Executive Director Barry Meldrum, met with the collection team in the museum collections area office bay, to discuss topics related to collections care, preservation of artifacts, new museum building use, move planning and new exhibit ideas for the new museum. The plan going forward is to have more regular meetups to discuss the collection, current and future exhibits, planning for moving and ideas for the new museum.
