December 15 Deadline Announced for Joint AIC and Heritage Preservation Award
The American Institute for Conservation of Historic and Artistic Works (AIC) and Heritage Preservation seek nominations for their joint Award for Outstanding Commitment to the Preservation and Care of Collections.
The award is presented annually to an organization in North America that has been exemplary in the importance and priority it has given to conservation concerns and in the sustained commitment it has shown to the preservation and care of its cultural property within the context of its broader mission. The winners are selected by a panel of distinguished conservation experts from across the nation.
The 2008 Award recipients were the Arizona State Museum and the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners.
Nominations for the award must be postmarked by December 15. Anyone may submit a nomination; self-nominations are welcome.
