I wasn’t able to attend the American Institute for Conservation’s (AIC) Annual Meeting last month in Milwaukee. However, thanks to ArtBabble, today I’m able to watch one of the more potent discussions: The Plus/Minus Dilemma: The Way Forward in Environmental, which was co-sponsored by International Institute for Conservation (IIC).
This discussion, which was moderated by our Director & CEO, was recently summarized in an article in the Art Newspaper, Climate control: time to change the settings.
I also want to point out what a great job AIC and IIC have been doing with their blogs to let members know about conferences and current news. Check out the AIC blog and read all of the recent posts about the Annual Meeting. While there’s no substitute for actually going to a meeting, the amount of information the members of AIC are sharing through the blog is impressive.
Along with AIC and IIC, ICCROM has been using Facebook and Twitter to share current news and connect with a larger audience. Even if you’re not a conservator, you ought to check out these pages and start paying attention to all of the discussions.
