American Institute for Conservation of Historic and Artistic Works (AIC) Annual Meeting
No longer focusing exclusively on treatment, conservation professionals today routinely incorporate preventive measures into the care of cultural heritage. Coupled with the awareness that our work takes place within the larger context of an increasingly interconnected and vulnerable global environment, we have become more dedicated to the issue of sustainability. The new Collections Care Network and the Sustainability Committee are combining forces to develop a program for 2014 under the theme Conscientious Conservation – Sustainable Choices in Collection Care, which will explore how these two concepts are changing the way we practice conservation. Are you working on a collection care project that incorporates issues of sustainability? Share your expertise with your colleagues! Topics can range from architectural projects to re-housing and storage, approaches to archaeological excavations, collection maintenance practices, or recycling and efficiencies in your own private practice.
AIC practices a non-smoking policy at all meeting sessions and events.
The attire for all Annual Meeting events is business casual.
