Long-Term Financial Stability for AMA: The first purpose is to ensure that the Arkansas Museums Association maintains a degree of long-term financial stability. This suggests the establishment of a financial reserve or endowment to help sustain the organization over an extended period, potentially protecting it from financial crises or uncertainties.
Funding for Programming and Educational Resources: The second purpose involves using the funds to support programming and educational resources that align with AMA's mission but fall outside the scope of the annual budget. This means that the organization aims to have additional financial resources to fund special projects, initiatives, or educational efforts that may not be covered by their regular operating budget. However, it explicitly excludes funding for the AMA annual meeting.
Member Development and Enrichment: The third purpose involves providing opportunities for the development and enrichment of AMA's members. This may include scholarships for members to further their education or professional development, training programs, and benefits for AMA staff members. It indicates a commitment to the growth and well-being of both the organization's members and its staff.
Overall, the purposes show a commitment to ensuring the financial sustainability of the Arkansas Museums Association and using available funds to further its mission, support specialized projects, and invest in the development and well-being of its members and staff.
