LAS VEGAS (October 2017) – The Mob Museum, The National Museum of Organized Crime and Law Enforcement, announces a significant expansion of its Advisory Council. Established to assist the organization in advancing the public understanding of organized crime’s history and impact on society, the Advisory Council is chaired by Museum Founding Board of Directors Chairwoman Ellen B. Knowlton and co-chaired by Amy Ayoub.
The Advisory Council membership roster includes highly esteemed individuals, such as former Senator Harry Reid, former Nevada Governor Bob Miller, and leaders within numerous law enforcement agencies, as well as academic and corporate entities. National members include experts from the FBI and IRS Criminal Investigations, and an array of intelligence specialists, journalists, historians and others whose knowledge and professional experience make valuable contributions to the Museum’s mission. Advisory Council members collectively contribute to the development of new Museum exhibits and programs, creating more effective ways of delivering these experiences to the public.
“These individuals bring substantive knowledge from careers in law enforcement, the criminal justice system, media and academia,” says Jonathan Ullman, executive director, The Mob Museum. “The depth of expertise represented by this Advisory Council is extensive, ranging from important historical perspectives, to insights into the most current global manifestations of organized crime and law enforcement efforts.”
The Mob Museum’s Advisory Council was created to support the organization’s growth, but does not hold any fiduciary responsibilities. The governance of the Museum continues to reside under a well-established and respected Board of Directors.
