The first forum call

On Thursday, July 26th, the Emerging Conservation Professionals Network of AIC held their very first forum call. Using a webinar platform, the call was able to bring together around 100 emerging conservators to participate in a presentation by Debbie Hess Norris. If you missed the live webinar, you can watch the recorded version below.

To sum it up, Debbie’s presentation offered emerging conservators tips on how to promote our careers through networking, outreach, education, and fundraising. There was a lot of information packed into one hour, but many of the sources recommended in the webinar are conveniently listed for you in this blog post on Conservators Converse. It sounds like there may be more handy webinars like this to come, so keep your eye on the ECPN Facebook page.

The most amazing aspect of the webinar was bringing together people from around the country (and the world!) to share this knowledge. I’m so happy ECPN took the opportunity to poll the audience about their conservation experience and goals; the results were really interesting, and can be found in the video recording.

Thanks to ECPN and Debbie for your collaboration and hard work to make this happen!

A link to my blog!

I was just clicking through links on the Winterthur site, as I often do, and found a link to my blog in the outreach section! I guess this is good news since the point of the blog IS to reach out to people interested in conservation.

This is also a great segue into mentioning the Emerging Conservation Professional Network (ECPN) blog, to which there is also a link from the Winterthur site. I’ve just starting becoming more involved with ECPN and am realizing what amazing potential the network has for pre-program conservators, current conservation students, and even those who have already begun a career in conservation. The first ECPN committee really put a lot of work into establishing the group, so now it’s our turn (yes, you too) to contribute to the cause. If you’re interested in writing a blog post or want to get involved in some other way, any level of professional background is invited and all of us ECPNers would really appreciate it. Just send me a message or write something on the facebook page.

Thank you in advance!
