The Emerging Conservation Professionals Network (ECPN) is pleased to announce that our fourth webinar – “Get Involved! Conservation Education, Outreach, and Advocacy Webinar” – will take place on Wednesday, April 23rd.
The program will feature three speakers with experience working in various aspects of conservation education, outreach, and advocacy: Teresa Myers, private practice conservator who participated in the American Alliance of Museum’s Museum Advocacy Day in 2011; Richard McCoy, an arts and cultural consultant with an established history of writing for digital and print publications, teaching in graduate programs, and creating innovative web projects; and Sarah Barack, private practice conservator and co-chair of AIC’s K-12 Educational Outreach subcommittee.
Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions before and after the webinar here on the AIC blog, as well as during the webinar in a Q&A session. Please submit your questions to Anisha Gupta at agupta[at]udel[dot]edu. Questions will be accepted until the morning of the webinar, during which your questions will be posed anonymously. All unanswered questions at the end of the program will be addressed in an AIC blog post following the webinar.
