ART IN PUBLIC PLACES COMMITTEE
The mandate of the Art in Public Places Committee is to provide advice and guidance to the City of Orillia on matters related to policies, projects, and procedures related to the provision and installation of public art within the community.
The Building Committee is responsible for overseeing the restoration, maintenance, and future expansion of the physical plant of the Museum. The committee will develop plans consistent with the Museum’s strategic goals, vision and mission with a view to ensuring that the physical plant will accommodate the Museum’s vision to be the anchor for the arts, history and cultural community in Orillia and surrounding areas
The Finance Committee exists to ensure that the Museum adheres to sound and accountable financial reporting, auditing and internal fiscal control processes.
One of the Museum’s strategic goals is to strengthen fundraising development practices that lead to an increased return on investment. The Fundraising Committee’s purpose is to put in place programs to help achieve that goal.
The purpose of the governance committee is to coordinate the work of the Board of Directors and to implement best practices in director recruitment, succession planning and governance quality improvement.
The Museum’s vision and mission reference its strong mandate to promote and celebrate local history and offer programming that engages our stakeholders. The History Committee has a central role to play in delivering on that mandate working with the Board, Museum staff, Museum Committees and other local area history committees.
HUMAN RESOURCE COMMITTEE
The purpose of the HR Committee is to support the Board of Directors and the Executive Director by undertaking from time to time, as directed by the Board, research, reports and projects related to personnel issues.
A key element of the Museum’s mission and vision is to celebrate history by promoting the local arts, history and cultural communities with our stakeholders. OMAH (and previously the Orillia Historical Society) has published numerous works in past that addressed this mandate. The purpose of OMAH Press is to continue in this role by facilitating and encouraging the production, publication and dissemination, in digital and/or print form, of content (broadly defined to include written, audio visual or multimedia formats in Braille, English, French or an Aboriginal language) about the factual, artistic or cultural history of the Orillia area.
Volunteers contribute to the Museum in a variety of ways to supplement staff resources with Visitor Experiences, OMAH Shop, Exhibitions, Collections and Research, Events, Communications, Administration, and Programming. They also act as community ambassadors increasing awareness of OMAH with various stakeholders. The Volunteer Committee’s mandate is to celebrate the contribution of the Museum’s volunteers, organize and grow their ranks and identify new volunteer opportunities.
