CAC Annual Conference

From: Shelagh C. Linklater <slinklater>
Date: Thursday, December 31, 1998
CAC 25th Annual Conference and Workshop
May 25-30, 1999

The conference and workshop will take place at the newly restored
Hotel Fort Garry in the heart of Winnipeg, close to the Forks
national Historic Site. The Forks (the Junction of the Red and
Assiniboine Rivers), has for over 6,000 years been the place where
people have come to meet, trade, and tell stories. It is therefore
appropriate that the CAC hold its annual conference and workshop in
this area to continue the tradition.

The theme for the 1999 workshop is "Green Conservation:
Environmental and Human Safety in Conservation." Greater public
awareness of environmental issues and human health have altered
views of safety in the workplace particularly in the field of
conservation. In this workshop we will examine health hazards and
how to combat them; not only toxic chemicals, but also biological
hazards such as those encountered in disaster recovery and
infestation. Physical hazards, diseases, and injuries that commonly
occur will also be examined.

The workshop will also study how the conservation profession is
taking steps to prevent further damage and reduce risk by adopting
environmentally safe treatments and new options which move away from
the use of hazardous materials.

We look forward to seeing you all in Winnipeg. For more information
