We have welcomed many new up and coming conservators to the fold since the EC group began earlier this year and are excited by the new connections and possibilities that this will bring about.  Those with ideas for a speaking topic or event, or professionals interested in developing early career conservators should feel free to get in touch.  Anyone interested in becoming a committee member is also encouraged to email Fran at flupaterson@gmail.com to register.

The Emerging Conservators SIG had a strong presence at the conference earlier in November, and it was great to see so many professionals share their experiences and speak with such passion about the future of our industry.  We were also pleased to help student conservators from the Grimwade Centre launch the new SC@M mentoring program.  Head on over to https://goo.gl/EN2FQm if you are interested in becoming a mentor.
