The Board of Directors of Museums Alaska is very pleased and excited to announce, after completing an intensive search, the hire of Heather Beggs as our new Executive Director. Heather started in her new position on April 1st. Many of you will remember Heather from her time directing the Pratt Museum from 2003-2009. Since that time she has worked abroad for a couple years, managing a project at Te Papa Tongarewa, New Zealand’s national museum, and managing Peace Corps operations in The Gambia, West Africa for the last year. She returned to Alaska two months ago to work for the Alaska Legislature and will continue her work with Rep. Paul Seaton in addition to her work for Museums Alaska. You can reach Heather at Museums Alaska’s regular email: firstname.lastname@example.org. Please take a moment in helping us welcome her aboard.
President, Board of Directors
