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.

AICCM is the professional organisation for conservators in Australia.

2020 COVID-19

We would like to update you on the actions that the AICCM is taking in response to the current pandemic. We’re also looking for ways to support our members, please let us know if you have ideas of how we could best do this.

We are continuing to engage our contractors Michelle (Secretariat), Hilary (our book keeper) and Zora (our web & social media expert) at their standard hours. Time relating to activities that are currently on hold will be transferred to building a better online connection with members.
