Limited Capacity seats available

Effective stewardship does not simply happen - it must be thoughtfully planned. Every conservator should know how to develop and implement a preservation plan. An effective plan helps to optimize financial and staff resources and systematically approach preventive conservation issues and establish treatment priorities. Workshop participants will receive guidance to develop strategic, 3 to 5 year preservation plans for their collections or for institutions with which they consult. Through lecture, group activities, and discussion, workshop participants will learn about methods for assessing needs, the components of an effective plan, tools for prioritizing activities, how to establish realistic benchmarks, and how to advocate for preservation planning within their organization or with their clients. Participants will also be provided with templates for creating their own plans.
