#ARCSConf Registration Fees Announced

Registration will open soon for the 2019 ARCS biennial conference, being held in Philadelphia, PA November 7-9, 2019. We are pleased to announce the following fees for attending:

  • Individual $295.00
  • Students and Retirees $210.00
  • Vendors $1,200.00

From the two and a half days of lively, informative sessions covering a myriad of topics, to the fun social events where you can connect with old friends and new, to the opportunity to participate in our popular Les Bénévoles events and network with colleagues and vendors, we think these prices are a steal!

Newsflash from a Member

ARCS member Lori Benson is teaching an online course, Moving Museum Collections, through museumstudy.com. Anyone who has faced a move knows how daunting they can be. The course will help you define the scope of your project, develop a work plan and schedule, prepare a communication scheme, define proposals for vendors, choose equipment, estimate costs, identify hazards, organize staffing and establish packing techniques and standards.

For more information, or to register, please visit their website here.
