Welcome MANY Interim Director Sheila McDaniel!

April 18, 2024 1:22 PM | Megan Eves (Administrator)

What can I say about Erika Sanger? Actually, quite a bit. While most of you already know, I wanted to mention a few:

  • Doubled membership
  • Doubled earned income
  • Grew attendance at our Annual Conference
  • Raised over $2.5M to support NYS Museums
  • Shepard through and strengthened MANY during COVID-19

Erika is a force. Because of her passion and vision, many have gotten involved with MANY, including myself. She has transformed MANY and, as a result, the museum sector in New York State. We are better because of her.

As I take on the Interim Director role, my commitment is to do Erika's legacy justice and keep the important and vital work of MANY going while we find our new leader to move us forward, standing on the tremendous foundation Erika has given us.

I am deeply grateful for the warm welcome and congratulations I received at our Annual Conference this month. Your support and engagement are invaluable to us, and I am eager to continue working with you, our members, and member institutions in the coming months.
