Preventive Conservation 2014
A hands-on study experience from the Foundation of the American
    Institute for Conservation
January 20-31, 2014
Ossabaw Island, Georgia

This is a unique opportunity to study and apply preventive
conservation techniques in a historic house on a wilderness barrier
island off the coast of Savannah, Georgia.

Six participants will join six project leaders for this in-depth
experience at the Torrey West House on Ossabaw Island.  The island
is reachable only by chartered boat, and participants will bring
supplies and food from the mainland. The course is intended for
anyone managing a historic property, and it has been popular with
emerging professionals in the field.

There is no registration fee.  The six selected participants will
provide their own round trip transportation to Savannah, Georgia and
food for meals.  Each participant will receive a small stipend
toward these expenses.  The Ossabaw Island Foundation and FAIC will
provide boat transportation to the island, hotel lodging in Savannah
on the night of Saturday, January 19, 2014 and lodging January
20-31, 2014 in the historic "Clubhouse" maintained by the Ossabaw
Island Foundation. Participants will return to Savannah on January
31, 2014.

To apply, please send a letter outlining your interest in preventive
conservation and a resume or c.v. (be sure to include all current
contact information) by December 5, 2013 to: courses at

Late applications will be considered if space is still available.
