Subject: Convergence of UK conservation organizations

Convergence of UK conservation organizations

From: Tina Marshall <tina>
Date: Wednesday, October 13, 2004
Five United Kingdom organisations vote to converge

During the week of 27th September 2004 members of all five
"Vanguard" organisations voted by large majorities in favour of
convergence to form a new conservation institute.

    Care of Collections Forum                           83%
    Institute of Paper Conservation                     74%
    Photographic Materials Conservation Group           91%
    Scottish Society for Conservation and Restoration   84%
    United Kingdom Institute for Conservation           98%

(Percentages are of those who voted.)

The Chairs and other representatives of these organisations would
like to acknowledge the decisive role of Carole Milner, Chair of the
National Council for Conservation-Restoration, in leading us towards
this successful conclusion.

Work will now begin on the formation of the new institute, for which
these votes provide a strong mandate.  Further information on this
development will follow.
