The American Institute for Conservation of Historic and Artistic
Works (AIC) is hosting its 26th Annual Meeting in the greater
Washington, DC metro area June 1-7, 1998 with the general theme
"Disaster Preparedness, Response and Recovery."  Lynn Nicholas,
author of The Rape of Europa, will kick off the program as this
year's Keynote Speaker.  Workshops and presentations by
international and U.S. disaster management experts and conservators
will be featured during two day-long sessions on Preparedness and
Response.  Sessions conducted by AIC specialty and
subgroups--Architecture, Book and Paper, Objects, Paintings,
Photographic Materials, Research and Technical Studies, Textiles,
Wooden Artifacts, and Conservators in Private Practice--will
continue with the theme of Recovery during the remainder of the
week. Conservation suppliers will be available to answer questions
about their products and services in the Exhibit Hall, June 3-6.

To date, we have over 700 registrants.  Many workshops and sessions
are still open.  Do not miss out on this opportunity to learn about
and confer with colleagues on historical and cultural property
disaster management.  Sign up for the meeting today.  Reduced
registration meeting rates are available through May 18 (postmark).
