"It's going to be so nice. I think things will move along a lot faster with a board," said Melissa Hogan, Whitaker Museum director. "I've been pushing for this since before I was called to this position."
The meetings will be open to the public and minutes of the meeting will be filed in the city office, under public records.
The museum board will be required to implement and carry out approved projects and initiate, sponsor and promote activities having to do with the Whitaker Museum.
"We've got all kinds of ideas and hopefully the board can implement them," said Hogan. "I am excited to finally have a board."
Hogan hopes the new committee can motivate more area residents to come to the museum.
"We want to get more school children into the Museum more often," said Hogan. "To get them excited about being at the museum."
City residents interested in being considered for a position on the board will need to turn in a community service form, in the next few weeks, to Centerville city hall.
The form may be printed out from the city Web site or at city hall.
