The Current MEG Committee

Members of the committee are formally the trustees of the Museum Ethnographers Group as a charity.

While committee members initiate and oversee most of the activities of the group, they do so on an unpaid voluntary basis.

Despite the formal structure of the committee, one committee member has suggested that MEG might best be thought of as a ‘collective’ - a lively, informal group of peers, who hope to learn from fellow members' experience and also to share their problems and solutions.
