Tapping the Expertise of Experienced Leaders in the Field

  • Are you the chief executive, or a senior manager reporting to the chief executive, of an ASTC-member organization?
  • Do you have a question, issue, or concern and feel you would benefit from discussion with an experienced member of the field?

If so, ASTC’s Call A Colleague program may be just the right resource for you!

Call A Colleague offers highly experienced, volunteer museum professionals from North America and Europe, who are available at no cost to discuss a wide variety of topics with leaders of ASTC member organizations.

About Call A Colleague

A group of former leaders of science centers and museums created Call A Colleague in response to the need for increased support for leaders in the science center field. Each Colleague participating in the program has had decades of experience leading science centers and museums. They are available individually to serve as a sounding board, provide further information or insight on specific topics, or connect you to other resources through referrals.
