I am on the scrounge for copies of any documentation and commentary on Board structures for Local Government run museums in Australia.
I am currently going through the process of developing a strategic plan for the Burke Museum and Historic Precinct in Beechworth and the process has thrown up the need for a Board of Management rather than the current direct Council control and a S86 advisory committee.
It is possible to have a 'trading' Section 86 Committee under the local government act, but is this the best way to proceed.
I have my own ideas and opinions, but I'm sure there is a perfect option already out there.

I had a look at that before, but what I am looking for are some case studies for options for a Local Authority run Museum to devolve to a Board or committee with governance and some financial roles rather than simply advisory. My quest ran a bit dry as I was finalising a strategic plan, but now that has been accepted I need to come up with options.
