The Steffen Thomas Museum of Art welcomes applications for the Board—Class of 2021! Applications are due by December 1, 2020. The Museum is located in Buckhead, Georgia just outside of Madison, Georgia (

In the past, STMA has selected new directors from its membership and community connections as well as asking current board members to recommend qualified candidates. We have now moved to a more open process, allowing interested candidates to nominate themselves. In doing so, we hope to welcome new board members who will share the can-do attitude that has always fueled the museum’s work while bringing new perspectives to its leadership.

We are seeking board members who will be eligible to serve a three-year term, from 2021-2024.

For more information, please contact the STMA office by phone (706) 342-7557 or e-mail with attn. to the Vice President of the Board.

Interested applicants may find the application on our website ( and mail it to the museum.

About the Board

The mission of the STMA program is to provide an opportunity to engage, to learn, and to be inspired through Steffen’s life, art, and legacy. As a nonprofit 501c3 organization, the STMA Board of Directors raises funds to support the mission of the museum and provide education opportunities for the community. Our guiding principles are:

1. Financial stability is essential to be responsible stewards of resources

2. Operational stability will help museum focus on the future and not on reaction to needs

3. Program development is a primary method for expanding the museum’s focus on Steffen’s legacy

4. Access to Steffen’s collection guarantees better collaboration and extension of Steffen’s legacy into the community

The STMA Board of Directors meets the third Thursday of every other month from 5:30 – 7:00 p.m. with additional committee work being conducted between these meetings.

Current Board Members: Don Roman, Bob Cuellar, Brian Titus, Lisa Conner, September Gray, Connie Shumake, Dr. Leara Rhodes, Pam Burnett, and Cheryl Bland

Committees: Gifts and Grants, Building and Grounds, Marketing and Promotions, Programs and Education, Technology for Digital Development/film and video production, Exhibitions and Acquisitions.
