AICCM is delighted to congratulate Dr Ian Macleod of the Western Australian Museum on being awarded the ICOM-CC Medal.
It was awarded at the closing ceremony of ICOM-CC’s Triennial Conference in Copenhagen on September 8th 2017.
Many of us know Ian as a wonderful teacher, communicator and mentor and this highest honour of the conservation profession recognised all these qualities which have been shared with conservators across the world.
Ian was described in the citation as a free spirit and an amphibian that has worked across all ICOM-CC working group boundaries especially in the conservation of underwater heritage. We know Ian not only as a highly skilled conservator but also a great friend to the profession that answers every email he gets and is always driven to come up with solutions to problems.
Ian – well done!
