Strategic Planning Process underway for the New Brunswick Museum, Canada’s oldest continuing museum

The New Brunswick Museum (NBM) is underway with a strategic planning process this Fall and over the Winter months that will help shape the future of New Brunswick’s provincial museum and Canada’s oldest continuing museum – celebrating 178 years this year.

NBM CEO Bill Hicks shares, “This process will set the NBM’s course for the next few years, in terms of facilities, collections, organization, digital and virtual engagement, inclusion and overall vision.

NBM Board of Directors Chair, Rebecca Moffatt says, “the NBM Board of Directors are very pleased with this critical process the NBM is embarking on to provide strong guidance, in particular during these unprecedented times, for a clear New Brunswick Museum vision and mandate for all of New Brunswick, across the country and internationally.”

To begin this process, the NBM and NBM Board of Directors are pleased to share that NGL Nordicity Group has been selected, to assist the NBM with the development of their strategic plan.

The NBM wishes to thank all the firms who submitted a proposal. A strategic planning committee is in place made up of NBM Board Members, NBM Management, provincial reps, and the Foundation for the NBM. This committee undertook a rigorous assessment of the various submissions to the Request for Proposals issued through Service New Brunswick’s Central tendering process.

NGL Nordicity Group’s team comes with an extensive background in bilingual Strategic Planning for museums and other industry related organizations here in New Brunswick and across Canada. Their team brings a strong digital and virtual knowledge that will serve well as part of the overall direction NBM aspires to further offer its diverse growing audiences.

The NBM and Board Members are excited to be working with NGL Nordicity Group on developing a much needed new comprehensive and inclusive NBM Strategic Plan. As well as providing direction in these uncertain times, the plan will allow for the NBM to evolve well into the future.

Over the next few months, the NBM will be looking to the public and stakeholders to help shape the NBM Strategic Plan.
