Call for North American Textile Conservation Conference (NATCC)
Board Members

NATCC is a not-for-profit (501(c)3) organization that was formed to
improve the quality of textile conservation by sponsoring biennial
conferences and publishing the papers from those conferences. At our
recent biennial meeting in Mexico City, many attendees expressed
interest in helping NATTC with its work. It was decided to offer an
opportunity to join the 12-member board of NATCC to all those with
an interest in NATTC. There are two vacancies on the board.

As specified in the NATCC Bylaws, new directors are elected by a
majority of the board to serve a 4-year term. Board members, who
must be practicing textile conservators, curators, or scientists,
are responsible for the organization of the biennial conferences.
The NATCC Board meets twice per year, once during the AIC Annual
Meeting and once at another time and place selected by the board. In
the years when a conference is held, the second meeting generally
occurs on the day after the conference. NATCC does not reimburse
board members for travel expenses associated with attending board
meetings. Board members must be residents of North America.

We are especially interested in bringing our meetings to a wider
geographical area within North America; this requires local board
members to serve as the nucleus for the local committee. With that
in mind, we are especially interested in hearing from interested
parties in the southwestern United States, Canada and the west coast
of North America. Among the qualifications that the NATCC Board is
seeking in its additional members are: Spanish proficiency/fluency,
South/Central American affiliations, institutional support, and
previous board experience.

Those interested in serving on this congenial board should write a
letter describing their experience, qualification and interest to:
Joy Gardiner, NATCC Secretary, jgardiner<-a t->winterthur< . >org. Letters are
due by Dec. 30, 2005.  The Board will announce its decision by
February 15, 2006.
