North Carolina State University
Raleigh, NC

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.
