I am sure you are enjoying the delivery of two AICCM Bulletins each year and online access to volumes going back to 1975 via the Taylor & Francis website. Our readership has increased and as the editor, it always pleases me to see how many people are reading and downloading our papers. This has been a big shift for the membership and dissemination of our research to a worldwide readership.

In 2017 expect two more volumes, drawn from a call for papers from the AICCM Special Interest Group meetings. So there will be a mix of papers from frames, textiles, paintings and works on paper. Plans for papers for 2018 are underway with a special volume dedicated in honour of Professor Colin Pearson and his diverse interests and expertise from conservation policy, education, marine archaeology, metals conservation and conservation in the Asia Pacific region. There are also plans to draw on the key points raised at the 2017 Shock of the New Joint Object and Electron SIG Meeting. So we are developing both themed and general volumes from the papers submitted and invited. The Editorial Board is really open to suggestions and feedback on the recent volumes. Thank you everyone who has supported the AICCM Bulletin. There is lots of busy work that goes on behind the scenes and you know who you are.
