In the spirit of reconciliation, the AICCM acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of Country throughout Australia and their continuing connections to land, sea and community. We pay respect to their Elders past, present and emerging and extend that respect to all First Nations peoples.

Conservation is about preventing damage and loss to our cultural heritage.

Conservators work to preserve our cultural heritage.
