Local Advisory Board
The Ackland’s Local Advisory Board (LAB) was launched in April 2018 in order to deepen and expand the Museum’s network of advocates and supporters in Chapel Hill and the broader area, and to create a forum for interesting and vibrant discussion about the arts, the community, and the Ackland’s role in both.
Nominations to the Ackland’s LAB occur once per year. If you are interested in learning more about this opportunity to help the Museum engage with our community, please contact Andrew Parrish, Assistant Director of Development, at email@example.com or 919-962-3118.
