During the past year, we adapted our Decent Council bylaws to relate to current practices, initiated new docent categories including Docent Emeritus (as we recently celebrated the Museum’s tenth anniversary), and for the first time asked docents to sign an annual agreement. AU of these changes were made following consultations with The Docent Educator, a resource that explores many aspects of the docent experience. While we had to adapt ideas to fit, the suggestions and ideas flowed as soon as we read of the experiences and solutions other docent groups shared. Thanks for creating the magazine. Enclosed are the fees for 14 group subscriptions.
