2016 Annual Conference Scholarship Recipients.

We value the involvement of students, working professionals, and volunteers whose institutional support is insufficient to attend our upcoming Annual Conference “Battling the Bloom.”  To help offset costs of conference attendance, NCPC offers a limited number of conference scholarships.  The scholarship is intended to promote continuing preservation education and professional networking and covers full registration.  It does not cover travel, lodging, or other expenses.

Applicants must be employed by or volunteer at a North Carolina institution with a preservation mission that has little or no funding for professional development, or be a graduate student enrolled in a preservation related discipline at a college or university in North Carolina.

The application process couldn’t be simpler. Simply tell us why attendance is important for you.    To apply for a scholarship, please send an email explaining why attendance is important to you to the NCPC Executive Director by October 31st.  Early registration fees will be honored for any applicants who are not granted a scholarship.

New Workshop: Disaster Planning, Response and Recovery

NCPC has been giving a great opportunity to fill ten seats in this workshop. Time is short, so sign up today!

Disaster Planning, Response and Recovery

Martha Battle Jackson, Chief Curator for North Carolina Historic Sites, and Sharon Bennett, Archivist at Charleston College, join forces again to lead this 2-day workshop. The pair have shared their own hard-won lessons in disaster planning, and guided participants in useful artifact recovery techniques for a variety national and regional organizations in the past, such as American Association for State and Local History and Southeast Museums Conference. This fall, they’ll focus on training North Carolina’s collections stewards through a combination of presentations and hands-on disaster simulations.
