Who runs the show
The Museum of the Great Plains Authority operates as a municipal/public trust with a 501(c)(3) status. We're governed by a board.
The trust has fifteen seats. Three members are appointed by the City of Lawton; three by the Institute of the Great Plains; three by the The McMahon Foundation; and six serve as At-large appointees.
Trustees serve three-year terms. The City, Institute, and The McMahon groups replace one member annually. The At-large group replaces two members annually. Officers serve one-year terms.
The trustees really are more delightful (less boring) than this makes them sound. Good eggs, all of them.
