The Leadership Partnership is volume two in the Museum Trustee Association's Templates for Trustees series. The book and customizable web-based templates feature tools that help boards to consider their options, identify their priorities, and plan their actions at this critical moment in a museum's life cycle. In addition to the manual and on-line website, purchasers have access to the ongoing assistance of MTA staff. As nonprofit management becomes more challenging, thinking about the relationship between the board and the director is evolving. The bright line between the board's responsibility for policy and the staff's responsibility for management is blurring. The Leadership Partnership explores and supports this critical partnership between the executive director and the board and helps leadership develop strategies and approaches appropriate for the individual institution. A series of online surveys allows board members to look at their own performance, that of the board as a whole and that of the executive director across ten critical areas of museum management: mission, vision and strategy; professional development, board operations, individual relationships, oversight, finances and fundraising, collections, facilities, and public engagement. The final template guides users into turning the findings from the surveys into a leadership plan, to be presented and discussed with the board.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Museums eager to heighten their governance and executive leadership capacity are advised to take advantage of the wisdom and tools provided in this invaluable publication. The straightforward guidance that Fischer and Roberts provide is refreshing, and the tools accessible for institutions of any size. -- Gail Anderson, president, Gail Anderson & Associates and author, Reinventing the Museum: The Evolving Conversation on the Paradigm Shift
The Museum Trustee Association series on working with Boards is a wonderful resource for them and the director. The templates lay out best practices for board members--participating in strategic planning, engaging in accreditation, and empowering them to work with the director ensure the museum's financial stability. -- Nancy Doll, director, Weatherspoon Art Museum, The University of North Carolina at Greensboro
MTA's templates have been extremely helpful to our Board of Trustees and our staff. They provide relevant and useful information that is easy to use. Their "real world" orientation makes them essential tools for any museum. -- Bruce Eldredge, executive director, Buffalo Bill Center of the West, Cody, WY
The MTA templates are a most useful tool for governance and board development committees everywhere. They are simple to customize and to collate--great attributes for museums like ours. I've even used them for non-museum organizations wishing to survey the talents and skills on their boards. -- Lynn Homeier Rauch, vice president, Board of Trustees and chair of Governance and Board Development Committee, Walters Art Museum, Baltimore, MD
The Museum Trustee Association templates are a conversation starter for any Board looking to transform or grow its governance process. The series balances best practice standards with customizable content to address the needs of museums of all sizes. As a new Executive Director I used the templates as a self-guidance tool to set priorities for my first year. They served as a catalyst for dialogue with my Board about how to most effectively implement mission and vision. -- Annette LeZotte, former executive director, Kauffman Museum
