Call for applications--NATCC board members

Request for applicants to the North American Textile Conservation
Conference Board of Directors

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.

We are now inviting applications from our North American colleagues
to join the 12-member Board of Directors.  There are two open
positions; if you are interested in our organization we encourage
you to apply for membership. If you would like to learn more about
the organization before applying, we encourage you to contact one or
more of us via email.  Current board members are:

    Emilia Cortes, emilia.cortes<-at->metmuseum<.>org; Shannon Elliott;
    shannon.elliott<-at->utoronto<.>ca; Joy Gardiner,
    jgardiner<-at->winterthur<.>org; Christine Giuntini,
    christine.giuntini<-at->metmuseum<.>org; Susan Heald, healds<-at->si<.>edu;
    Claudia Iannuccilli, cpian<-at->mfa<.>org; Sharon E. Little,
    selittle<-at->videotron<.>ca; Hector Manuel Meneses Lozano,
    restauracion<-at->museotextildeoaxaca<.>org<.>mx; Esther Methe,
    emethe<-at->textilemusuem<.>org;  Lorena Roman,
    jbgclove<-at->prodigy<.>net<.>mx; Sarah Stevens,
    sarah.stevens<-at->oprhp<.>state<.>ny<.>us; Beth Szuhay, bszuhay<-at->famsf<.>org

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 agreed upon by the Board.
During a biennial conference year, the second meeting generally
occurs on the day after the conference. NATCC cannot reimburse Board
members for travel expenses associated with attending meetings.

We are especially interested in bringing our meetings to a wider
geographic area, which requires regional board members to serve as
the nucleus for the local committee. With that in mind, we are
especially interested in hearing from our colleagues in Canada, the
southwest and west coast of the United States, and Mexico. Among the
qualifications that the NATCC Board is seeking are: fluency in
Spanish and/or French, South/Central American affiliations,
institutional support, previous Board experience, and a proven
ability to work collaboratively.

Those interested in serving on this congenial Board should write a
letter describing their experience, qualification and statement of
interest to:

    Joy Gardiner
    NATCC Secretary

Letters are due by December 1, 2009.
The Board will announce its decision by January 15, 2010.
