Mission: The mission of the Historic Resources and Museum Advisory Board (HRMAB) shall be to promote, coordinate, and strengthen the advocacy and advancement of public programs within the Historic Resources and Museum Program to further the cultural development of the City of Raleigh.

Vision: The vision of the HRMAB is to be a leader in the advocacy and advancement of programming, preservation, communication, and public involvement associated with Raleigh’s Museums, Historic Sites, and Historic Attractions, recognizing these are essential contributors to the economy and quality of life of Raleigh and its citizens. Further, this Advisory Board is to advance public programs, encourage efficient operations, and support staff in efforts to provide all Raleigh citizens and visitors diverse opportunities for cultural engagement, education, and stewardship, understanding always that the story of Raleigh is the story of American democracy. The success of the Board will be measured by the quality of visitation and volunteer involvement combined with the quality of programming, collections stewardship, and historic interpretation.

Advisors: The HRMAB consists of 12 advisors, appointed by the Raleigh City Council, upon recommendation by the HRMAB. The Administrator of the HRM Program shall serve as an ex-officio, non-voting member. In addition to the regular members of the Board, there may be ex-officio, non-voting members as follows: one representative of the City Council, and one representative of the Parks, Recreation, and Greenway Advisory Board. The HRMAB, upon recommendation of the Chair and approval by the HRMAB, may appoint additional ex-officio, non-voting members to serve at any given time.

All appointments to the HRMAB shall be on the basis of a two-year term. Once an advisor has three consecutive terms, or six years, on the HRMAB they are not eligible for reappointment to the HRMAB for a two-year period. Appointments shall be staggered to the end that there shall always be one or more veteran advisors upon the HRMAB.
