"Linking the Environment and Heritage Conservation:
    Presentations, Tips, and Discussions"
AIC's 40th Meeting
Albuquerque, NM
Wednesday May 9, 2012

Tickets: $8.00 buffet lunch included in the ticket price

The AIC Committee on Sustainable Conservation Practice has organized
a lunch session at AIC's annual meeting with two keynote speakers in
environmental conservation and four tips on art and heritage
conservation. The keynote speakers will give an overview of current
essential issues in environmental conservation and how they relate
to our conservation field. They will also address practical issues
concerning materials and solvent use, and will discuss how green
chemistry applies to our work. We have put ample time aside for an
engaged, educational discussion session. A detailed program is
attached below. Please feel free to circulate.
