Request for new Presentations
We are continuing to look for Preparators, Art Handlers and other Collections Care professionals who are interested in providing presentations for future PACCIN Chats. Topics can be wide-ranging; we encourage presentations, interviews or discussions of interest within the industry, including packing and installation projects, professional development, Diversity, Equity and Inclusion discussions and new health & safety standards for the workplace.

PACCIN provides educational programs to the community, content should not be any form of promotion of any commercial services or products. If you havenít presented before, no problem! PACCIN Chats are intended to be an easier, more accessible and less formal way than a traditional conference presentation to share your knowledge, discoveries or ideas with your peers. We work with you on getting your presentation set up.

Presentations are expected to be about ten minutes long. Send your proposals and questions to Jerry Smith, PACCIN Programs Committee Chair.
