AMM Board Members

The Annapolis Maritime Museum & Park (AMM) is a major community asset serving Anne Arundel County and beyond. A volunteer board of 16 distinguished community members and a professional staff oversee the operations and long-range planning for this tax-exempt 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. We are also proud to say our thriving cohort of over 350 volunteers is involved in all aspects of the Museum’s functions. Please visit our Membership page if you are interested in making a fully tax-deductible gift to the Museum or become a member.
