Train the Trainers--Emergency Response Workshops

Foundation of the American Institute for Conservation of Historic
and Artistic Works (FAIC) announces grant to train emergency
response workshop trainers

The FAIC has received a grant from the National Endowment for the
Humanities (NEH) to conduct Emergency Response Workshops.  Ten
individuals from related disciplines, such as conservators,
registrars, collections care managers, archivists, archaeologists,
state historic preservation officers or staff, curators, librarians,
Civil Affairs officers, historic preservation architects and
professional emergency responders will be chosen from a pool of
applicants who have demonstrated excellence and experience in
previous training or teaching activities, and have a background or
interest in emergency response.  The ten trainers will be chosen to
represent a professionally and geographically diverse group of
people.  The instructors for the Emergency Response Workshops will
be Jane Hutchins and Barbara Roberts, both of whom have extensive
experience in disaster training.

The initial workshop will consist of a four-day "Train the Trainers"
session to be held in the fall of 2000.  Expenses for the "Train the
Trainers" workshop participants will be paid including, airfare,
hotel and per diem.  The ten trainers will be expected to conduct a
workshop in the spring or fall of 2001, and must agree to make every
effort to conduct disaster workshops in the future.  Instructors,
Jane Hutchins and Barbara Roberts, will monitor the workshops in
2001.  The second phase of the program will include a series of five
workshops in the spring and fall of 2001 that will be open to
seventy-five participants.  Applications for the second phase will
be available in late summer for the disaster workshops in 2001.
Expenses for these workshops will also be covered through NEH

Guidelines and applications for the "Train the Trainers" session
will be available on June 14, 2000 from FAIC.  Applications must be
postmarked by August 1, 2000 with notification of selected trainers
on or before September 5, 2000.
