Call for Sustainable Tips at AIC’s 40th Annual Meeting

AIC’s Committee for Sustainable Conservation Practices is putting out a call for tips to present at our lunch session Wednesday, May 9 at 4AIC’s 40th Annual Meeting. The 2-hour lunch session, Linking the Environment and Heritage Conservation: Presentations, Tips, and Discussions, will include 2 presentations from environmentalists, followed by a 1-hour tips session and a 20-minute panel discussion.

Conservators will have 10-minutes each to present tips on how they are incorporating more sustainable practices. Topics could include: treatment materials no longer in use due to their environmental impact and their replacements; reduction and reuse of materials; new approaches to loans; and cost savings realized from sustainable practices.  Other topics are also welcome for this tips session and it is hoped the session will have a diverse range of tips and practical advice.

To present a 10-minute tip, please submit a proposal to CSCP by December 20, 2011 to sustainability[at]
