The Council consists of one person from each of the municipalities that contributes to the foundation’s operation with a minimum amount which at the time of foundation is NOK 250 000,- per year. In addition, the three regional councils in Ofoten, Vesterålen and Lofoten appoint one member each. The council elects a mayor and a deputy mayor for a period of two years.
The council meets once a year? Late June 30th? and elect board members to the Museum Nord Foundation. In this work, a nomination committee is used, which the council itself opposes. The Nomination Committee has four members, one member from each region and one member representing the ownership foundations of Museum Nord’s theme museums. The Nomination Committee promotes its priorities based on criteria adopted by the Council.
The Council also elects an auditor to audit the foundation’s accounts. The auditor must be registered or authorised by the state.
The foundation’s plans, annual report and annual accounts will be presented at the council meeting. In addition to the council meeting, a conference with topics relevant to the work of the Museum Nord Foundation is held. This should be open to all interested parties.
