INTEGRATED PEST MANAGEMENT FOR CULTURAL PROPERTY

Date: September 13-14, 2017; 9:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.
Location: St. John’s, NL; Venue to be determined.

In this two day workshop, participants will learn how to recognize and identify organisms that are detrimental to the longevity of collections. Participants will also learn how to decide how to respond to the discovery of pests from a suite of options. There will also be an opportunity to learn how to assess cultural property for pest risks and propose an IPM plan to mitigate them.

This workshop is beneficial for staff and volunteers of cultural facilities who are responsible for the physical integrity, research, exhibition and other utility values of collections of cultural property, all of which are harmed by pest activity.

This workshop is an elective course for the Museum Studies Certificate Program. For more information about this program, please contact Sarah Wade, Professional Development Coordinator via email at swade@nf.aibn.com or at (709) 722 9034.

STILL SPACE, LAST CHANCE TO REGISTER! Strategic planning!

ANLA is holding a strategic planning session to help us determine directions for our organization’s future over the next five years. The session will take place on Saturday June 17 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at The Lantern, 35 Barnes Road, St. John’s.

Our previous experience with strategic plans has shown us that a strategic plan is a very effective means of ensuring that our organization stays focussed on its mandate and on the needs and objectives of its members. The last strategic plan, which covered the years between 2011 and 2015, was a great support to our organization, especially in the face of shifting funding opportunities. The object of this session is to consult members about the basics of a strategic plan for 2016-2020.

Some travel and accommodation support is available to ANLA members from outside St. John’s who wish to attend the session. Accommodation will be provided for the nights of June 16 and 17, which could also enable participants to attend ANLA’s AGM. Contact the ANLA office for further details.

Register for this event by contacting the ANLA office. Registration deadline is June 12, 2017.

If you are not able to attend this session but would still like to have input in the strategic planning process we would welcome your written submissions.

Please see your e-mail for a copy of the 2011-2015 strategic plan.

Plan to attend and be involved in shaping ANLA’s future activities!
