Green Task Force

This article was originally published in the July 2008 Vol. 33, No. 4 issue of AIC News

During the AIC Annual Meeting in Denver, Paul Himmelstein presented a proposal signed by an extensive list of AIC supporters to develop a Green Task Force that will assist members and the AIC in implementing environmental sustainability actions.The AIC Board of Directors and attendees at the annual business meeting approved the following revised motion:

“We therefore propose that the Board of the American Institute for Conservation of Historic & Artistic Works (AIC) create a task force to investigate implementing green practices for AIC itself and the conservation profession. Such a study should be complete within two years from this meeting date. The task force will report to the Board through official channels.”

AIC is seeking up to seven members to serve on the new task force, charged with investigating the implementation of green practices for AIC itself and the conservation profession.The task force will regularly report to the AIC Board through the Director of Committees and Task Forces and will submit its recommendations within two years.The Green Task Force will communicate through email and conference calls and should consider including corresponding members who can provide additional expertise.

To be considered for service, please send a letter of interest to Cathy Hawks at [email removed] by August 1, 2008.
