Re: [BKARTS] AIC Stuff

Some institutional people are part-time, and so do have their own
studio practice as well.  Moreover, some recent graduates have had
unremarkable success finding employment in their specialty, and so they
work under grants, more or less as temporaries.  The movement back and
forth can be fluid.  Then there are those who establish their own
practice, while waiting for a formal position somewhere, closing up
when they do find one.

CIPP membership counts only those who have pungled up the additional
cost (not a big cost) to join the subgroup.  There are many AIC members
in private practice who have not joined the Conservators in Private
Practice, for whatever reason.

It's quite possible that the AIC office does not keep statistics on the
relative percentiles.  They do ask for employment info on the
membership form, but that doesn't mean the figures are tallied or that
there is much meaning in them.

A very thoughtful and probably correct posting. Thank you Doug. I
also am sceptical
about their "no reliable statistics" answer.
