MoLAA passes American Alliance of Museums’ core documents verification

The Museum of Latin American Art (MoLAA) has passed the American Alliance of Museums’ (AAM) core documents verification, according to MoLAA.
The AAM, the national professional organization for the museum industry, has verified that MoLAA has an educational mission and ethics, planning, emergency and collections stewardship policies in place that reflect standard practices of professional museums. These elements were evaluated because they are deemed essential for every institution that identifies itself as a professional member of the museum field, according to MoLAA.
“One reason that MOLAA undertook this outside review was to show both our stakeholders and the public that the museum has policies and plans in place that are essential to good museum management and provide our staff and board with the structure, ethical grounding and accountability needed to make consistent, informed decisions for the good of our public and in support of our mission and sustainability,” states a press release issued by MoLAA this week. “Another reason that MoLAA went through the process of core documents verification is that it is one of the required steps towards receiving AAM accreditation, the highest national recognition of a museum, which is one of MoLAA’s goals.”
Stuart A. Ashman, MoLAA’s president and CEO said his staff is very pleased to be recognized for the achievement. “The process of self-examination and the refinement of our documents was an invaluable exercise for the museum,” he said.
