New Vice Chair for NMDC 7/6/2017

Iain Watson has been elected to the role of NMDC Vice-Chair, a new position created to lead NMDC's advocacy and policy work on regional and local authority museum issues.  Iain, who has been Director of Tyne and Wear Archives and Museums and an NMDC member since 2010, also sits on the Museums Association Board as well as the English Civic Museums Network and the MA's Taskforce, so NMDC members agreed he is ideally placed to take on the role of Vice-Chair.

Also: Dr. Kevin Fewster, Director of Royal Museums Greenwich, has joined the NMDC Advisory Committee in place of Diane Lees who stepped down as NMDC Chair in April.
