When Laura B. Roberts began Roberts Consulting in 1996, she brought with her 20 years of experience in nonprofit cultural and educational organizations. Her work as an executive director, senior staff, board member, and grant maker gave her multiple perspectives on the assets and challenges of the cultural community.
As a consultant, she has worked with more than 160 museums, historical organizations, preservation organizations, arts centers, performing arts organizations, and schools. Through strategic planning, organizational development services and facilitation, she helps organizations move forward in ways that reflect strategic thinking and decision making, mindful of the organizationís mission and capacity and its audienceís priorities and needs. Her work has one over-riding goal: to help boards and staff create an organization that is an asset to its community.
Laura is a founding member of The Museum Group (TMG), a nationwide consortium of senior museum professionals now working as independent consultants. She is past president and treasurer of TMG.
