Governance

The museum is a department of the City of Platteville, with its staff reporting to the City Manager. Leadership is provided by two boards – The Friends of The Mining & Rollo Jamison Museums and the City of Platteville Museum Board – which participate in museum strategic planning and assist with implementing projects and programs.

The Friends of The Mining & Rollo Jamison Museums are the 501(c)(3) nonprofit that serves as the membership organization for the Museums and provides fundraising, financial support, volunteers, promotion, and other public support for the Museums.

The City of Platteville Museum Board is an official board of the City of Platteville. The Museum Board sets policies for all aspects of The Mining & Rollo Jamison Museums relating to maintenance, staffing, public utility and the disbursements of monies belonging to the City of Platteville Museum Fund. Its responsibilities are governed by ordinance per Wisconsin State Statute 229.11 - 229. 18 and City of Platteville Code 3.22.
