The Museum Alliance of Rapid City Board operates exclusively for charitable, scientific, literary, and educational purposes. The Board of Directors oversees the general management and control of business and affairs of The Journey Museum and Learning Center.
The mission of the Journey Museum and Learning Center is to preserve, educate and explore the heritage, cultures and environment of the Black Hills region to understand our past, enrich our present and sustain our future.
Directors will be asked to be members of the museum and serve on a committee (Finance, Governance, or Education), plus attend scheduled Board meetings. This attendance is expected with exceptions made for excused absences.
