1999 WAAC Annual Meeting

November 15-16, 1999

San Francisco, CA


WAAC holds an annual meeting where conservators meet and present papers. The meeting is held in the fall in a different location each year. Annual meetings in previous years have been held in places like Timberline Lodge, Las Vegas, Sequoia National Forest, and Hawaii to name just a few. The 1999 WAAC Annual Meeting will be held at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art on November 15 & 16, 1999. In addition to the usual mix of papers on various conservation topics, the 1999 program will take a look at some of the more far-reaching effects of what we do--the why and how of what we change that comes down to us. By exploring this notion of intervention with others including landscape architects, architectural historians, art historians and archeologists our shared contributions to the creation of cultural memory will be discussed.
