    Join us for two days of presentations around the theme of Learning through Failure, and back of house tours of local museums.

If you would like to be a presenter, submit proposals to Julia Latané at jlatane@thebroad.org by February 1st.

    Conference admission is $100 for members, $125 for nonmembers (or sign up to be a member for $25, and get admission to the conference for $100). Registration begins on January 23rd. More details, coming soon.

    Who are preparators and art handlers? We invite you to make a 5 minute long or less presentation on how you became a prep. You can make a short film, a power point, or a pecha kucha (http://www.pechakucha.org/watch 20 slides for 20 seconds each) style presentation. Submit finished presentations to jlatane@thebroad.org by March 1st. We will choose some for PACCIN’s website, FaceBook, and LinkedIn pages.

    Hello Julia and Conference planners,
    Are there any more details regarding the schedule for Saturday... I'd like to book a flight for that evening but don't want to miss anything that may be happening later that day.

    Many thanks!

    Zachary,

    The conference runs from 8:30 AM to 5 PM each day. On Saturday afternoon we are working on a few musuem tours that will allow everyone a "behinds the scene" view of those museums. I hope that helps answer your question.

    On another note, a few of you have been asking about the content for the conference. We have been going through the proposals we recieved and should have a schedule out by the week of 2/20. Until then, the details posted on the conference page gives you a good idea of most of the topics that will be presented and more will be added.

    Now that we have the schedule posted I hope anyone who has not signed up for the conference will consider joining us. We still have plenty of room for more people to attend and the dealine for applying for one of the two scholarships is coming up this Tuesday, 2/28/2017. Each scholarship provides $500 to cover travel expenses and your registration is free.

    Regardless if you are attending or cannot attend, I urge everyone to partipate in our "Who We Are" project. All you need to do is create a short video telling us 1) how you got into the profession and 2) what parts of your job you like the most? During the conference we will be sharing these videos during the breaks and then afterwards we will share them on this website. So it is your chance to speak up and let the PACCIN community know who you are.

    My schedule suddenly opened up and I have a window to come to the conference, but I see registration is full. Any chance of late registration, or a cancellation list?
