Conference on cultural property protection

From: Roger Wulff <museplan>
Date: Wednesday, February 18, 1998
First established in 1977, The National Conference On Cultural
Property Protection has just concluded another successful conference
in Washington, D.C.  This long-running conference and ICMS Cultural
Property Protection Exposition addresses issues of: security, fire
protection (which represents the greatest potential threat to a
cultural institution), safety, facilities management,
emergency/disaster planning/preparedness, in all types of cultural
institutions and provides a forum where professionals who are
responsible for the protection of cultural property can get
together, learn ways to better protect the cultural property in
their care, and network, network, network.  Copies of the 1998
Conference Proceedings are available at USD $ 25.00 each - please
contact the Registrar at 202-633-9446 or E Mail grdmx [at] sivm__si__edu at
the Smithsonian Institution for details on ordering.

For 1999, this Smithsonian Conference will hold a joint meeting with
The International Committee On Museum Security of The International
Council of Museums and "take Its Show On The Road" to meet at The
New J. Paul Getty Institution, in California, USA. The dates of this
exciting conference venue will be 7-12 March 1999. Stay turned for
further details on this rare joint conference as they become
available (the last one took place in 1987).  This may be the best
way to get to see the new Getty Institution as the waiting lines are
now "stretching around the block."
