Retiree-Emerging Conservator Mentorship Program

In recent years, various AIC groups have given considerable thought
to how to better serve the growing constituency of emerging
conservators, especially with regard to providing mentors.  At the
same time, AIC has another growing constituency of retired (or soon
to be retired) conservators.  This group's wisdom and knowledge born
of experience is an invaluable and untapped resource that could be
shared with emerging conservators.

AIC is beginning a program to link these two constituencies and form
partnerships between conservators of different ages and experience.
For example, almost every seasoned conservator has unanswered
questions that s/he wanted to research during her or his career.
With the help of an emerging conservator who shares an interest in
that particular subject, a senior conservator may finally be able to
complete this project.  The emerging conservator will not only
participate in a new research project that may lead to a publication
but will also develop a new mentor relationship.

The AIC invites retired (or soon to be retired) conservators who are
excited about the prospect of forming a partnership with a young
conservator to contact us with your ideas for research projects.
Working with the Emerging Conservation Professionals Network, we
will endeavor to match you with an emerging conservator who is
inspired by your idea.

Please send a paragraph summarizing the purpose and scope of the
proposed research project to Ryan Winfield
<rwinfield<-a t->conservation-us< . >org> by December 1, 2014.
