Meet Your ARCS Board Member

This week we would like to introduce you to one of our newest Board members, Elise LeCompte.

I hold an M.A. in archaeology and chemistry from the University of Florida and a B.A. in anthropology from the Johns Hopkins University.

I have been Registrar, Assistant Department Chair and Coordinator for Museum Health and Safety for the Florida Museum of Natural History for over 30 years. In the past I have served as a consulting collections manager, exhibit registrar, and conservation technician at museums throughout Florida and the Southeast and have organized workshops and done presentations on these topics as well.

I am also an adjunct professor for the University of Florida Museum Studies program (teaching collections management and museum ethics), as well as at the Johns Hopkins University Museum Studies Program (teaching collections management). I have published several articles on collections management and artifact conservation.

Over the years, I have served regional and national museum organizations in several different capacities, including as an accreditation and museum assessment program reviewer for the American Alliance of Museums, council member, Career Center Coordinator and Scholarship Committee chair for the Southeastern Museums Conference, Travel Grants Coordinator for the Society for the Preservation of Natural History Collections, and mentor for the Florida Association of Museums Connecting to Collections program.
