The LMG committee meets once every three months; committee meetings usually take place mid-afternoon on a weekday. Meetings last two hours and the committee decides collectively the most convenient place, date, and time for future meetings.
LMG delivers at least two museum and workforce support/networking events a year. The Chair and the events sub-committee will attend these events, and most other committee members attend these if they can.
LMG welcomes applications from anyone working or volunteering in or for the museums sector in London. We are committed to increasing the number of committee members from underrepresented groups, including but not limited to those from the ethnic minorities, people with disabilities and young museum professionals.
