As I recently wrote about on the Conservators Converse blog (http://www.conservators-converse.org/2015/02/direct-care-and-conservation/), the AAM has formed a task force to better define the meaning of “direct care” in regard to deaccessioning. This issue has a direct impact on funding for preservation and conservation at museums. Unfortunately, their task force did not include any conservators but now it is our chance to be heard. Anyone, not just AAM members, can fill out the short survey.

The survey deadline is tomorrow, Mar. 4, so please complete it ASAP and forward it to other conservators.
