Bringing preservation professionals together to share ideas is one of the hallmarks of the annual NCPC conference. Each year we look forward to welcoming many voices to the table to celebrate preservation efforts across the state and to learn from one another. This year’s conference, the first in-person gathering in three years, takes as its theme a metaphorical potluck. Recognizing that there are a wide variety of projects, interests, and challenges in the field, NCPC invites proposals on any topic that the preservation community feels is important. We are embracing a broad theme and keeping an open mind to find out what’s cooking in cultural heritage.

The deadline for submitting proposals is October 6, 2022 at 11:59 PM.
“Battling the Bloom: Mold Protections for Collections”
November 13, 2017
North Carolina State University
North Carolina Preservation Consortium’s 2017 annual conference will address preventing, identifying, and remediating mold in archival and object collections. Experts from the fields of conservation, preservation, and industrial hygiene will help participants learn about the risks mold poses for buildings, artifacts, and collections stewards.
The headline speaker for this day-long event will be Susan Duhl, a Baltimore-based conservator with expertise in paper collections and broad knowledge of disaster recovery and collections management. In addition, Dr. Wayne Thomann of Duke University will shed light on mold’s risks to human health. North Carolina conservators will add in-depth discussions on paintings and objects, and discuss mold mitigation in historic buildings.
Don’t wait for mold to strike first. Arm yourself with knowledge and resources to battle the bloom. Register now to get the lowest rates. Early bird registration ends October 15, 2017.
