The AICCM Emerging Conservators SIG is for current students and recent graduates of Australian cultural materials conservation training programs. This group works with universities and students to ensure graduates feel supported and part of the community during student and post-graduation years by: 

  • connecting them with each other, their community and the AICCM
  • promoting training opportunities and AICCM activities
  • increasing the involvement and representation of emerging conservators at AICCM conferences and symposiums
  • easing the transition from student to working professional
