    The first PACIN Preparators Conference held on August 14th and 15th at The Clark Institute of Art has been agreed by all attending to be a huge success. For all the delegates, presenters and sponsors attending the conference proved to be an excellent opportunity to gain knowledge and meet new colleagues. The presentations and workshops perpetuated further conversations which continued at the Q & A’s, Roundtable Forum, coffee breaks, lunches and all evening events, planed or free formed.

    In another first for our group, PACIN took our booth down the road to Los Angeles where AIC (The American Institute for Conservation of Historic and Artistic Works) held its 37th Annual Meeting on May 19–22.

    Our presence there was made possible to a large degree due to the generosity of AIC and specifically of Amanda Knowles Meetings Coordinator – AIC, and Ruth Seyler - Membership and Meetings Director - AIC.
