Les Bénévoles

ARCS Pre-Conference Event: Wednesday, November 6, 2019

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

As part of the Association of Registrars and Collections Specialists conference in Philadelphia this year, we will hold a day of volunteerism at local museums for attendees. The name of Les Bénévoles, which translates to The Volunteers, was chosen to complement the French heritage of New Orleans which hosted the conference in 2015, and has been carried over to subsequent conferences.
