The New Orleans Museum of Art is New Orleans' oldest art institute and is the premier art institute of the Gulf South. From September through December 2009, I served as an intern in the Development Department at NOMA and then went on to fill the role of Interim Grants Officer from December through the time this document was written. I also have covered for the Special Events Coordinator during her leave of absence beginning January 4, 2010 through the present. NOMA has strengths and weakness internally, and opportunities and threats to functioning exist as well. Through a thorough examination of this institution, a consultantcy's report was compiled based on examination of NOMA and the best practices of comparable institutions and museum management standards.
