At its regular meeting on September 26, 2018, the Fairfax County Park Authority Board honored five teams within the Resource Management Division on their efforts to maintain the high standards necessary to achieve accreditation by the American Alliance of Museums (AAM). Colvin Run Mill Historic Site, Green Spring Gardens, Sully Historic Site, and RMD’s Historic Artifact Collections were re-accredited while Frying Pan Farm Park earned first-time accreditation.
AAM establishes the standards through which museums are recognized for their commitment to excellence, accountability, and professionalism, and the organization says that “as the ultimate mark of distinction in the museum field, accreditation signifies excellence and credibility.”
