The Hudson River Maritime Museum is proud to announce it has been granted an Absolute Charter by the New York State Board of Regents. The museum was awarded this charter at the Board of Regents’ October meeting in Albany, New York.
New York State requires all museums, historical societies, libraries, schools, colleges, universities, and other organizations to be chartered with the state’s Board of Regents to ensure high standards of educational programming, historic research, and compliance with state and federal law. An Absolute Charter is issued when the organization is both educationally sound and financially stable.
“We are proud to receive this recognition from the New York State Board of Regents,” says Lisa Cline, Executive Director. “It’s confirmation that we are providing innovative educational programming and have the support of the Hudson River Community. It shows that the Hudson River Maritime Museum has staying power. This is a great way to celebrate our upcoming 40th anniversary!”
