        collections through description of its conservation and

        conservation professionals in decision-making processes.

    III. Providing evidence of how the nominated organization has
        broadened its community's understanding of the goals of
        conservation and the importance of preserving cultural
        property through its conservation activities can strengthen
        an application.

The proposer can be any individual within or outside the
