ECPN in Philadelphia

Here’s everything you need to know about the exciting events hosted by ECPN at the AIC Annual Meeting in Philadelphia (only two weeks away!):

Informational Meeting
TUESDAY, MAY 31, 5:30 PM–6:30 PM

Come learn about ECPN’s activities — the growing Mentoring Program, the use of social networking sites, the creation of a student research database, enhancements to the website, development of resources for setting up a private practice, and more. Other new initiatives will help students and others learn about publishing, internship, and job opportunities. We will also announce some positions opening within the ECPN committee.

Portfolio Review Session
THURSDAY, JUNE 2, 10-10:30AM and 3-3:30PM in meeting room 415 (4th floor)

Several representatives from the various graduate-level conservation training programs will be on hand to present their pre-program and graduate portfolios, and to discuss their portfolios with attendees. Pre-program and graduate students are especially encouraged to take advantage of this opportunity to see examples of student work first-hand.

Happy Hour
FRIDAY, JUNE 3, 6:00 PM–10:00 PM

Don’t just head home when the sessions end at 5:30 p.m. on Friday, June 3. Stop by Mcgillin’s olde Ale house at 1310 Drury Street — Philadelphia’s oldest continuously operating tavern —anytime between 6 p.m. and 10 p.m. to enjoy dinner and socialize with your fellow emerging conservators. If you’d like to walk over as a group, please meet in the lobby of the hotel at 10 to 6.
