Reading, Pa. – Barley Snyder is pleased to announce the Foundation for the Reading Public Museum has appointed Partner Frederick M. Nice to its board of directors.

The Reading Public Museum has provided educational experiences within the community for over a century by preserving a collection of art, history, science, and cultural artifacts from around the world. Since 2017, Nice has been active with the museum as a member of its finance committee. He is one of five new board members which consists of 13 total members.

“The museum is truly a treasure of our community with its beautiful historic building, educational programs, arboretum and planetarium. I have been going to the museum my whole life and I have remained involved since my wife’s passing. She helped take care of the gardens for over a decade as a member of the Reading Garden Club,” said Nice. “Being active with the museum is a way for me to continue her selfless contributions of bringing life, beauty and inspiration to the world.”  

As a board member, Nice will help further the museum’s mission of educating, enlightening and engaging current and future generations through art, science and civilization.

“Our new board members not only have a tremendous amount of experience but also a deep-rooted commitment to our community’s cultural education and enrichment,” said Paul G. Oxholm, Interim Director and CEO of the Reading Public Museum. “Their diverse perspectives will help us continue to welcome new audiences to this incredible community learning and gathering place.”

In addition to Nice’s museum involvement, he has volunteered with several nonprofit organizations including United Way of Berks County, Opportunity House, Reading Symphony Orchestra, Easterseals of Eastern Pennsylvania and more. Nice concentrates his law practice in the areas of business, banking, tax and estate planning and administration.

“My goal is to continue to work on the ownership, governance, operation and maintenance of the museum and its collections and grounds for the enjoyment of everyone in Berks County in order to enhance the educational experience that it provides,” said Nice.
