COMPASS is a group of Leadership Level Members with an interest in education, collecting and giving.

Offering a variety of exclusive programs and experiences, COMPASS provides educational insight into all aspects of CAM and its collection and gives members a voice in museum acquisitions.

COMPASS includes at least three experiential events per season designed to be fun and engaging while encouraging the exchange of ideas and interests, connoisseurship and collecting.

Yearly dues ($1,000/person or $1,500/couple - $500/person if under Forty) gives members a voice in the permanent collection, with a seat at the Acquisitions dinner in February to cast votes on future acquisitions, meet upcoming artists during visits to their studios, and by being inspired by visiting private collectors - is uniquely part of the COMPASS experience.


Please contact Heather Wilson directly for renewal, if you want to sign up, or have any questions - or call (910) 395-5999 ext. 1010

"Being a member of COMPASS has been rewarding on so many levels. It allows me to financially support an institution that is a gem in our community, but it has also exposed me to new ideas about art and collecting and also led to friendships with other members that I will always cherish."

- Elizabeth Wells
Chair, CAM Board of Trustees
