goal of linking CCN members through a discussion list as a top 

priority. Immediate needs discussed during the meeting included: 

collecting and posting annotated links to preferred resources for 

collection care practitioners; creating tools for support of collec-

tion professionals, including job descriptions and salary surveys; 

and developing preventive care advocacy materials. Planning 

begun during this meeting has already led to two joint sessions to 

be held at the June 11–16, 2012 annual meeting of the Society for 

the Preservation of Natural History Collections (SPNHC). (For 

more information see the SPNHC 2012 website: http://peabody. Many future partnerships 

are anticipated.

The items described above are but a portion of the initial work 

that will begin to realize the Standing Charge given to the CCN 

by the AIC Board. 

The CCN organizing committee (Rachael Arenstein, Julia 

Brennan, Rebecca Fifield, Gretchen Guidess, Catharine Hawks, 

Wendy Jessup, Karen Pavelka, Patricia Silence, and Joelle Wickens) 

has appointed a slate of officers to facilitate project planning. 

The committee adopted both abbreviated and staggered terms 

to expedite and promote future diversity of the CCN leadership 

among professional groups that will compose the CCN. The 

officers are:

The CCN will bring together preservation organizations, 

professionals, and information resources to support the critical 

work of collection care. We consider preservation as an umbrella 

concept that covers both preventive care and conservation treat-

ment. The CCN wishes to foster dynamic exchange among 

collaborators engaged in preventive care, grow the body of 

preventive care knowledge, and disseminate this knowledge to 

support the work of all collection care practitioners, conservators, 

and allied professions. Join us.
