Activities Report: September 1998

During September 1998, I continued to provide counseling regarding the execution of the AMICO Full Membership, Museum, and University Agreements. I worked closely with Jennifer Trant and David Bearman to provide answers, clarify terms, and resolve a number of legal issues in connection with the signing of these important agreements. All AMICO Full Membership Agreements save one have now been signed. I provided counseling regarding AMICO's application for recognition of tax-exempt status, which is pending before the Internal Revenue Service. I reviewed the terms and conditions of AMICO's Directors' & Officers' Liability Insurance Policy (with the Chubb Group of Insurance Companies) and made recommendations regarding the same to the Executive Committee of the AMICO Board at its September meeting. I represented AMICO at the first full meeting of the Museum Attorney's Group (MAG), an informal working group of museum counsel, where I delivered an update on AMICO activities.
