LEXINGTON PARK, MD – The Board of Directors of the Patuxent River Naval Air Museum Association (PRNAMA) is currently soliciting applications for membership.  The Board of this nonprofit association is responsible for governance of the museum, providing strategic planning and goals to the museum staff, and supporting the mission and vision of the museum.

Members of the Board of Directors play a key role in the direction of the museum’s future, development of exhibits, special events, educational programs, and many other exciting areas.

The museum seeks a diverse board, with backgrounds in retail, small business, law, management, publicity, etc., not just engineering and aviation experience.

Interested parties should prepare two quick paragraphs for submission to the Board of Directors. These paragraphs should include:

1.  Applicant’s background that would further the mission and goals of the museum. This paragraph is not intended to be a formal résumé or biography but rather a candid description of any special skills or experience the candidate would bring to the Board of Directors. 

2. Why the applicant is interested in joining the Board.  This paragraph should also be a candid description of what interests the applicant may have that coincide with the objectives of the museum.

PRNAMA Board Members work diligently to ensure the future of the museum and meet monthly to address issues.  The Board is comprised of between 8 and 15 members who represent a broad cross-section of both interests in Naval Aviation and the concerns of the St Mary’s County community. 

The Board will accept submissions until May 31, 2020 via e-mail at boardofdirectors@paxmuseum.org.
