Testimonial: Debbie Smith, Former Chair, Maine Cultural Affairs Council

Sam and I were colleagues for a decade when we both worked at museums in Maine, a relatively small professional community where the leaders truly stand out. I have nothing but good recollections of this experience, in particular, the years when Sam was President of the Maine Archives and Museums Association and I was also on that board.

Sam is an excellent facilitator, a “Big Picture” thinker, and a taskmaster who can get results without losing his sense of humor or his respect for the humanity that lies at the core of every museum’s mission. In short, I found his leadership to be inspirational and would highly recommend him to organizations that are engaged in the hard work of moving to the next level of maturity–Sam will be a first-rate conductor of your journey.
