Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum board holds annual fiscal review meeting

The Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum recently hosted its annual Board of Governors’ fiscal review meeting, which included a reception along CBMM’s waterfront campus in St. Michaels, Md. The June 25 meeting included presentations from CBMM President Kristen Greenaway, Vice President of Finance Branden Meredith and Vice President of Operations Steve Byrnes.

Updates were given on CBMM’s new Master Plan, a review of CBMM’s finances for the prior fiscal year, and information about the September 8, 2018 Boating Party Fundraising Gala.

“I am incredibly grateful for the Board’s unwavering commitment and support of our mission and work,” commented CBMM President Kristen Greenaway. “We’ve achieved quite a bit in the past year—our growing K-12 school and Rising Tide After-School boatbuilding programs, for example—and we’re excited to press forward with our new exhibition and library building, and other components to our Master Plan.”

Attending the reception were members of the Board of Governors, Board Emeritus and alumni, Friends Board, and staff, with a post-meeting reception held waterside on Fogg’s Landing, catered by Garden & Garnish of Trappe, Md.

Established in 1965, the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum is a world-class maritime museum dedicated to preserving and exploring the history, environment, and culture of the entire Chesapeake Bay, with values of relevancy, authenticity, and stewardship guiding its mission.
