Mission: The Bruce Museum Council serves as a body of advocates and ambassadors for the Museum to the larger community on artistic, scientific, political and external affairs issues.

Goals: The members will advise the administration and help build the widest possible consensus for the Museum's initiatives. Members will cultivate collectors who may wish to donate works of art and scientific objects of importance to the Museum, and will present the case for the Bruce's growth and development to wider constituencies. Further, they will identify candidates to be recommended to the Governance Committee for future Trusteeships.

Members: Current and past chairmen and presidents of the Bruce Museum Inc. Board and distinguished individuals who have held leadership positions at the Museum or in the community will be invited to join the Council. The Council will gather approximately four times a year. An annual leadership gift will be requested.

Term: Other than the Honorary category, Members will continue for a term of one year, renewable annually with majority consent of the Governance Committee.

Annual dues for the Museum Council at $3,000 ($2,800 deductible) and include a one-year Patron level membership. Participation on the Museum Council is by invitation.
