Posted by Amber Hanover on April 5th, 2022

On behalf of the Board, I am excited to announce Emma Morris as the new Executive Director of the Museums Association of Saskatchewan, beginning August 29th, 2022.

Emma Morris is an experienced heritage professional, coming with a wealth of knowledge about museums, art collections, and heritage. Many of you will be familiar with Emma, as she worked for MAS from 2016-2017 as the Community Engagement Coordinator, where she coordinated and facilitated Network meetings, as well as working with our members on engagement. She has great knowledge of policy governance, as she currently is President of the Board of Directors of Heritage Saskatchewan.

She comes to MAS recently from the City of Regina, where some of her achievements included developing a Civic Art and Cultural Heritage Policy (CACCP), and an annual Indigenous Artist in Residence program. Her familiarity with government processes allows her to be a strong advocate for our sector and museums within the province.

Emma has a strong knowledge base on museums and heritage and the current trends that are affecting our members. She was selected following a very thorough recruitment process, which resulted in a field of exceptional candidates. Our Board believes that Emma’s strong work and volunteer experience in heritage and culture, along with her passion and commitment to the field, qualifies her for success in carrying MAS forward into the future.

Please join us as we welcome Emma to the position of Executive Director!

For the period of April 1st to August 28th, Wendy Fitch has agreed to continue as Interim Executive Director, meaning she will be joining us at the upcoming MAS conference and AGM. The Board would like to thank Wendy for agreeing to continue throughout the spring and summer, and for her guidance throughout her transition into retirement.

Merissa Scarlett, President
