Starting as a small group of museums professionals wanting to raise the profile of the cultural heritage sector in Kingston in the early 1980s, the Kingston Association of Museums, Art Galleries & Historic Sites (KAM) formally incorporated in 2009 and is now governed by a Board of Directors.
Our Board of Directors includes a strategic mix of representatives of regional cultural heritage experts and institutions. Directly under the Board are volunteer committees responsible for a specific portfolio or operational mandate. KAM’s Managing Director and Office Coordinator are responsible for leading daily operations and report directly to the Board of Directors.
KAM has a mixture of regular standing committees and ad hoc committees. Each Board member assumes responsibility particular portfolio or committee, and acts as a point of communication between Board and Committee levels. A KAM committee consists of individuals who either represent a member organization or association, or pulled from a large KAM volunteer base depending on their expressed area of expertise and interest.
