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 David Goist and Corey Riley will add in-depth discussions on paintings and objects, and Reid Thomas of the State Historic Preservation office will discuss mold mitigation in historic buildings.

Don’t wait for mold to strike first. Arm yourself with knowledge and resources to battle the bloom.

Scholarships

We value the involvement of students, working professionals, and volunteers whose institutional support is insufficient to attend this conference.  NCPC offers a limited number of conference scholarships.  This scholarship covers full registration.  It does not cover travel, lodging, or other expenses.  The application process is simple and consists primarily of telling us why attendance is important for you.  The scholarship is intended to promote continuing preservation education and professional networking.  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.  To apply for a scholarship, please send an email explaining why attendance is important to you to the NCPC Executive Director by October 10th Early registration fees will be honored for any applicants who are not granted a scholarship.

Cancellation and Refund Policy

Registration fees are nonrefundable; however, substitutions are permitted.  In the unlikely event that the conference is canceled (due to adverse weather or other causes beyond our control) registrants will be notified and fees promptly refunded.  NCPC accepts no responsibility in such cases beyond the refund of conference registration fees.
