Deadline approaches for appointment of MNH Trustees
THE deadline is fast approaching for local residents who are interested in becoming a Trustee of Manx National Heritage (Manx Museum and National Trust).
Individuals who feel they have the necessary skills to act as guardians of the Island’s unique heritage and cultural assets have until 5pm on Monday, February 20 to apply. The Council of Ministers is seeking to appoint Trustees for a period of up to five years, subject to the approval of Tynwald.
MNH is the independent statutory body which promotes, protects and preserves the Island’s natural and cultural heritage. As well as operating 11 museum sites, its responsibilities also include managing areas of natural beauty and ecological significance, protecting national monuments, controlling archaeological investigations, maintaining national archives, and collecting and displaying important examples of art. MNH is governed by trustees who make a valuable contribution to its many activities by virtue of their knowledge, experience and expertise.
Chief Minister Allan Bell MHK said:
‘Manx National Heritage plays an important part in Island life and the calibre of its trustees is vital to its continued success.’
