Heritage Preservation Programs Transition to FAIC

Thursday, April 30th, 2015

Throughout its 33-year history, first as the National Institute for the Conservation of Cultural Property and then under its current name, Heritage Preservation has fulfilled its mission to preserve the nation’s heritage for future generations through innovative leadership and educational agendas. It has steadily advocated for the protection of cultural heritage by creating programs, publications, and easily accessed products that advance the field of conservation and serve the needs of allied preservation professions. 

Heritage Preservation’s programs have been tested and proven. Hence, they are trusted and highly valued. Their loss would be severely felt throughout the cultural heritage community. Research undertaken over the past six months indicates that several synergies exist between the programs of the DC-based Foundation of the American Institute for Conservation of Historic and Artistic Works (FAIC) and Heritage Preservation. For this reason, following the recent vote by Heritage Preservation members approving its dissolution as of June 30, 2015, several popular Heritage Preservation programs will transition to FAIC, thus ensuring their continuation.

To learn more about the disposition of Heritage Preservation’s programs – including Heritage Health Information 2014, Alliance for Response, the Conservation Assessment Program, and Heritage Preservation’s joint awards – visit the websites of Heritage Preservation,, or FAIC,

Library of Virginia Partnership

This morning I presented with Cindy Church at the Virginia Library Association Paraprofessional Forum.  Cindy, Continuing Education Consultant at the Library of Virginia (LoV), has been working with us since the summer of 2010 when we needed a strong network to sponsor an EP&R conference we were planning for the state of Virginia.  Partnering with Cindy and the LoV afforded us the five elements below, which proved to be a major factor in the successful completion of our project.  If you work with outreach programs, it might behoove you to consider partnering with you state library.
