Welcome to AICCM Queensland Division

The Queensland division of the AICCM aims to promote awareness of conservation of cultural materials and is committed to protecting Australia’s heritage. We encourage networking between conservators in public and private practice along with allied professionals.


The division has members across the state with the majority located in Brisbane, Townsville and Cairns. The membership aims to meet monthly with opportunities for members to share and update on current work activities, conference attendance, discuss topical issues and share research, attend behind the scenes tours, exhibition visits and social drinks.

The Queensland division is currently working with the Preventive SIG to organise and prepare for the AICCM Agents of Change conference which will be held in Brisbane in 2021

The Queensland division also has an active emerging conservators and students group that meet together and connect with national members as apart of the Emerging Conservators SIG.

AICCM Q Professional Development Grant

Annual capitation funds provided to the division are used for professional development grants to be awarded to Queensland members. The availability of funds is reviewed annually, and guidelines may vary each calendar year accordingly.

The aim of the Professional Development Grant is to support members and enable them to attend conferences, workshops or meetings that will develop their individual practice and the conservation profession in Queensland. The applicant can also associate their application with a guest speaker or plan to organise a workshop that will benefit all AICCM Queensland Members.

Applications will be accepted for events occurring during the calendar year in which the grant is awarded.

The applications will be reviewed and a final recommendation made by the AICCM Q Professional Development Committee (General Members). The selection criteria is based on :

  • appropriateness of the event to furthering the applicant’s professional development
  • qualifications of the applicant
  • the applicant’s ability to publish/lecture on the event
  • previous funding received by the applicant from AICCM Q Professional Development Fund
  • completeness of application
  • compliance with eligibility criteria outlined on the application form
  • additional funding received by the applicant from external sources
